A Whole New Kind of Ad

Since RP is a completely different kind of candidate, how about a whole new kind of TV ad?

Scene 1

Captain America eating breakfast in the kitchen:

Wife asks: What’s your schedule for today, Dear?

CA: I’ll be heading off to save the world again. I just need to stop by the ATM and get some cash before I leave town.

Scene 2

CA walks down the steps of his downtown apartment and heads down the block to the ATM.

(The Kink’s Catch Me Now I’m Falling, plays in the background: “Now I’m calling all citizens from all over the world, this is Captain America calling. I picked you up when you were down on your knees, won’t you catch me now I’m falling.”

Scene 3

CA put his “US Treasury Dept.” bank card in the machine, which promptly displays the message “we’re sorry, but your account is overdrawn by $9,000,000,000,000!” CA reads this to himself softly and tries to figure out what the amount is (“nine million………….no billion…………..hmm, I guess that’s trillion…………….wow, nine trillion dollars, when did this happen?”

He bangs on the ATM when it won’t give his card back.

Scene 4

CA walks out of a pawn shop wearing only his boxer shorts and a t-shirt. His CA suit is on a mannequin in the shop window.

Dejected, CA sits on the sidewalk with a tin cup in his lap. He sighs as a gold coin falls in the cup. He looks up to see RP standing over him. RP is wearing a superhero outfit, complete with cape and CC on his chest. His belt is a polished gold change dispenser with a calculator clipped to his hip. He has a pencil over his ear and a pocket protector just to make him more accountant-like. CA says, “who are you?”. RP responds, “I’m your long-lost father, Captain Constitution, and I’m here to get you back on your feet.”

Ok, maybe RP won’t put on a leotard, but even RP in a suit and tie telling CA we can fix this mess would probably work.

Animated Version

Assuming the campaign doesn't bite on this concept.............................. any ideas on getting an animated version made? That would be way over my head in terms of technology.

Thumbs up


New Hampshire and Ecuador.



I think it is great too....

I also like the suggestions posted by others below....the pixar, or the actual clip of Ron Paul saying' I am Ron Paul, the champion of the constitution.".....would be great in California.

Definately we need some very 'out of the box' type ads....great one!

Jesus is the saviour of the WHOLE WORLD, "As in Adam all die, so too in Christ ALL shall be made alive." (ICor.15:22) All means all. The pagan 'hell' of literal fire & eternal torment is a lie and is SPIRITUAL TERRORISM. http://www.hopebeyondhell.net


I just got some ideas for RPForums:

How about animation so RP doesn't have to put on a costume. Maybe computer generated 3D, like Pixar?

Instead of asking "who are you?", when CA looks up at RP, he could flashback to actual footage of RP at the first debate saying, "I'm Ron Paul, Champion of the Constitution".

CA says, "you're Ron Paul"................... "There's still hope for us."
Or words to that effect.

I got a great visual of that

I got a great visual of that with my very active imagination. I say it's a Winner!!!


keep him in his traditional suit. and VERY COOL!!

Thanks, Gang

Thanks for the feedback. I'll post this on RPForums and send it to the official campaign site. I wish we could make this ad ourselves, but we would need an RP look-alike.

we all love it

the question is what does the non ron paul supporter think,



Lol, sweet ad. Yes, Dr.

Lol, sweet ad. Yes, Dr. Paul should have some of these.

That would be so



I like it .... that is would be educational and entertaining at the same time ...
