“While you can’t re-elect him, you can reacquaint yourself with him.”
That’s the line used to sell a weekend trip to Mount Vernon, “the original Washington Monument”, in this smart clip created by Havit to promote tourism at the Original President’s favorite place to hang out, tend to his tobacco farm and discuss the day’s events with his 318 slaves.
Great idea to frame it as a campaign ad spoof casting Washington as a candidate in order to make the prospect of visiting Mount Vernon just a tiny bit more hip.
One request we think the clip could have included for the benefit of tourists: stop asking him about the wooden teeth and the hemp already. No, they weren’t wood—and it was the (17)60′s, man! Everybody was doing it!
