The truth behind the spin? - three party political broadcasts (.wmv) made by Lee and Dan, the men behind the VW Suicide Bomber advert, and commissioned by the UK's Channel 4

Awesome! I'm voting for all three parties next time around -- and I'm not even British!

And who moved my beer?

I'd like to see their take on a BMP party political ad.

Anyone else think the lib dems should license their "spoof" ad and run it for real?

You could re-use the lib dems ad-idea in the states easy. Two major parties just bickering and bickering and bickering.. Yep, that pretty much sums it up.

Excellent! Nice to see the press somewhere still has some balls left.

Since I don't know much about the different parties (as an uninformed American), I think I'm fully qualified to base judgement solely on the content of the videos. The Liberal Democrat one won me over--a positive message can be 10x more powerful than a negative one.

I'm not sure how positive the Lib Dem ad was, CD. Most of it is just portraying the other two parties as bad.
