UPDATE: Here is the ad it’s up a bye bye barney.org:

…that I’ve discussed in the past. It is VERY funny and first rate. Well done Ladd Ehlinger!

Since the ad is now technically “up” Here are the last of my behind the scenes videos from the shoot. I left them out because they contained the sound track:

And the 2nd

And the last:

Full disclosure, my oldest worked as a secondary assistant in the making of this ad.

Update: The ad will not technically be “up” till 5 so I will be linking to it then but I had the OK for this upload at 4 so we are covered.

Update 3: Ace and I hit the UPDATE button at the same time

Update 4: Stacy McCain has a classic line:

Help Him Beat Barney Frank, and Then
Maybe Bristol Palin Will Teach Him to Dance

…as Stacy McCain Reports.

Some might think that a Palin endorsement might hurt more than help, but I submit that the Bielat campaign knows how to count.

The NYT has put up its story on Ladd Ehlinger and the Barney Frank ad. One piece of it that I noticed:

Mr. Bielat’s line, to appear at the end of the ad, was supposed to go something like: “I don’t need to dance around the issues. I’m a Marine.” But Mr. Bielat said he did not feel comfortable linking his military service to a political ad in a way that felt “like a non sequitur,” so he improvised.

How honorable is Sean Bielat? He was unwilling to use his Marine service as a prop. How many pols think that way?

Here are a pair of behind the scenes clips first the green screen area

That’s the NYT crew and RS McCain as they cover Ladd

When the ad comes up I’ll put it up with the last three behind the scene clips.

Update: One change since the film was made, it is no longer a “longshot” ah how the news cycle changes

Never had a general instalanche before so rather than hitting the sack here is a summary of posts on my road trip with Stacy McCain. I should note the Massachusetts races were covered with McCain on his trip to Mass as we did daily road trips.
