Humor in Political Advertising

Political ads give me the hives. It all looks the same to me, and I tune it out. After all, how often can you listen to arguments like this:

“He didn’t pay his taxes”

“Yes I did!”

“He voted against families”

“No I didn’t!”

“He hates puppies.

“No I don’t!”

(Ok, I might have made that last one up.)

The ads are predictable, and are therefore worthless. (I didn’t read a single political ad this year; did you?)

But check out these two humorous images the totally convey a political message. (Note how I have picked one image from either side of the aisle.)

What’s my point?

If you want to get your message across, use humor as a tool. Want to sell more, manage better, lead better, communicate better? Use humor. It will get your message heard through the noise.
