A Whole New Kind of AdSubmitted by summjet on Wed, 01/30/2008 - 17:04
Since RP is a completely different kind of candidate, how about a whole new kind of TV ad?
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.
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.”
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.
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.
