It’s not a great effort. If you’ve got to talk that fast (that says something in and of itse lf), you either need to cut some words or buy more time. The production value is weak with stills throughout. It’ll irritate who it intends to irritate, but it won’t motivate anyone who’s not already in the flash mob conducting this foolish mission.
I think Proft cheaps out the ads so he can pocket the money. He’s all in with the unions helping Staub so he can pay Durkin back but he and the IPI crowd attacked any Republican who took union money. He thinks that’s gonna fly?
I rate it a “C” - as in, See you later Proft. You and your tiny merry band of nihilists are relegating yourselves to the dustbin of Illinois political history. The crazy uncle sugar daddies are cutting you off. Where do you go after going down in flames in the February primary?
== Defeating a sell out insider who is the LEADER is more important to him in the long term than a single pro-union Republican. =
Wishful thinking. Proft’s stinky opportunism wins him no fans here or anywhere else. He uses someone else’s cash to buy loyalty and that only goes so far.
I give it a F. Its laughable that you can write a bs article in your own bs newspaper and then site it as a source in your bs ad.
Beyond all of that, like others have pointed out, the ad is way too long and looks hokey in comparison to the higher quality stuff that’s being created with the influx of money coming into IL politics. This ad looks like amateur hour.
Also good to know that Phil King is Proft’s handle for Cap Fax.

109 words in a thirty-second ad. That’s way too many to keep the message from becoming lost. The ad gets an “F” on the copy writing alone.
