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.
