McCain's Viral Video Recipe: Make Fun Of Obama
As we reported here, John McCain surpassed Barack Obama in daily YouTube views for the first time since the primaries last week. After being forced to remove his popular “Love” video because of a copyright claim by Warner Music Group (which we noticed last Friday and Silicon Alley Insider covered here), McCain managed to make another video go viral, an attack ad making fun of Obama’s celebrity status (below), comparing him to Paris Hilton and Britney Spears. Apparently, McCain’s (sustainable?) strategy for making videos go viral is to make fun of Obama. A little lighthearted ad hominem never hurt anyone, right?
