Rate Rauner’s new social media ads

Friday, Jul 18, 2014

* “This is slightly embarrassing” wrote a friend of mine this morning…

I had an ear worm of this song, and decided I might be able to cure it by listening to the whole thing.

So I went to YouTube — and got a Rauner ad?

Weird….

The song was “I’m Never Gonna Dance Again” by George Michael. Don’t click here. Seriously, I mean it. Don’t. I accidentally let the thing play after the ad and now I’ve got the same horrific ear worm.

Uuuuuggghhhhh!!!

* Rauner’s campaign explains via e-mail…

Bruce Rauner’s campaign launched a new digital campaign highlighting some of Pat Quinn’s biggest broken promises as governor.

The effort features targeted online advertising and encourages folks to add to the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #PatQuinnMoments.

“With massive tax hikes and a terrible economy, Illinoisans can’t celebrate Pat Quinn’s time as governor,” Rauner spokesman Mike Schrimpf said. “Pat Quinn is simply a champion tax raiser and made Illinois the Midwest’s leader in lost jobs.”

* “Pat Quinn’s Great Moments: Taxes”

Script…

Great moments in Pat Quinn history

He promised not to permanently raise taxes

Now Quinn is trying to keep his 67% tax hike forever

Pat Quinn champion tax raiser

* “Pat Quinn’s Greatest Moments: Jobs”

Script…

Great moments in Pat Quinn history

He promised to make jobs his number one priority

Under Quinn Illinois led the Midwest in job losses and unemployment

Pat Quinn #1 in unemployment

    Kind of funny and they are quick hits (15 seconds)…

    “C”

    Meh. They are what they are.

    Reminds me of “Jib-Jab” heads and videos.

    It’s a pass for both. Quick, funny, catchy. Obviously set up to become a series i.e. “Real Men of Genius” from Anheuser Busch for Budweiser. I’d expect to see one on every key issue that’s been identified. Smart and intelligent use of media.

    Rauner didn’t even use the official video, which is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=izGwDsrQ1eQ

    ===Rauner didn’t even use the official video===

    First of all, you made me click on that god forsaken song again, for which I may never forgive you.

    lol

    Second, people who post YouTube videos get to choose what sort of ads they’ll display. So, if that person who posted the official video (I refuse to go back and look) doesn’t allow ad videos to be played before their video, then Rauner’s video couldn’t be displayed. It ain’t Bruce’s choice.

    Now, please, don’t do that again.

    Why do you not understand that telling your folks “not to do something” actually dares them to do it? lol


  7. - Lurker - Friday, Jul 18, 14 @ 1:12 pm:

    This is neither here nor there, but I believe the song is called Careless Whisper.


  8. - John A Logan - Friday, Jul 18, 14 @ 1:15 pm:

    Gahhhh! Guilty feet ain’t got no rhythm.


  9. - South of Sherman - Friday, Jul 18, 14 @ 1:17 pm:

    Technically, the song is called “Careless Whisper.” Also, when I clicked — because I like the song, so sue me, haters — I got a Merry Maids ad. Which seems like the exact opposite of a Bruce Rauner ad.

    I guess every little bit helps.
