Goodby Silverstein & Partners Attempts to Scare Young People into Voting for Rock the Vote

With Halloween coming up at the end of the month, Goodby Silverstein & Partners has a new campaign for Rock the Vote that attempts to scare young people into voting, entitled “#CareLikeCrazy.”

In the above 30-second spot, a right-wing lunatic espouses his (scary) views on women’s rights, preceding his rant by letting you know he never forgets to vote. He says women, who “think they want equal pay” are just having their minds poisoned by feminism and its the responsibility of men to protect them from themselves. His psychotic rant is followed by the a horror movie scream and the message “He votes. Do you?”

We do appreciate the shout-out, though, and truth be told, a lot of the copy seems ripped straight from your usual AgencySpy comment thread. We were expecting about 50 versions of “hack” but we can wait.
