'Wassup' Video for Barack Obama

Villagers, do you remember the 'Wassup' craze that swept the nation back in the day. Those boys that were selling beer by saying 'Wassup' to each other? Well, they are back ... this time with the 'Wassup' perspective on 2008 presidential politics. Check it out!




By the way, over in the left-hand sidebar you will see us flip the script on John McCain's denigrating 'That One' statement from the debates. Click on the 'That One 2008' image whenever you visit. We plan to update it regularly for the rest of the calendar year.

Oh man...

This is a GREAT video. The way it ends is priceless.
Thanks for posting this.

Do we really have to bring back the wassup thing. I love the props for Obama but some crazy shit just needs to stay gone.

Keith - Asante sana!

Renee - Originally, I just had it as a link over on the left-hand sidebar ("That One"). However, I thought it was truly a creative and timely video. There is an interesting article on the background to the story. The guys who created the "Wassup" concept received $37,000 back in the day for a 5-year deal with Anheuser-Busch. That deal expired 3 years ago. This is the first time that they have used the concept again. Advertising folks were surprised that A-B didn't trademark the concept.

Anyhow, your point is well taken. Only 5 more days and these types of videos won't be relevant any longer.
