Cool Ad Watch

Some hathetic moments, but I loved it:

Some religious fussbudgets, however, were not amused:

A Tea Party candidate challenging House Speaker John Boehner got a few chuckles, and a lot of Internet views, with a recent raunchy campaign ad about “electile dysfunction” — but the spot has cost him one of his day jobs. J.D. Winteregg, one of two candidates running against Boehner in the Republican primary for Ohio’s 8th District, got into trouble with Cedarville University, a Baptist school in Ohio where he taught as an adjunct professor. He confirmed to that his contract was not renewed, on the heels of that ad. He said he was contacted by a supervisor who informed him his contract would lapse because the commercial “did not correspond with university values.”

Winteregg said it crossed his mind that the ad may draw concern from the university, but he and his team attempted to mitigate any concerns. “We actually worked really hard to put something out that I could be comfortable with as a faithful person,” he said. “I knew it might upset some people, but we did the best we could to keep it as a parody.”

Still, Winteregg said he has no regrets about the ad, saying he believes what Boehner has done in Congress is more offensive. “I’m all in with this,” he said. “You got to do this the right way. People lose elections because they are passive, and I’m going to fight for this.”
