New pro-Obama ad has children blaming parents for aftermath of a Romney win

 

A new video in support of President Obama features a children’s choir singing about a world in which Mitt Romney wins the 2012 presidential election and gays can be “fixed” and “oil fills the sea.”

The web video was produced by the firm Goodby Silverstein and Partners -- known for the “Got milk?” advertising campaign and a client base that includes Cheetos and Nintendo, according to The San Francisco Chronicle.

The child sing about blaming “mom and dad” for the Romney vote, as a piano accompanies them.

The two-minute ad is on the Future Children Project website above the words: “Re-electing President Obama is a momentous decision that will require every single voter. What would the children of the future say if we let them down this November?"

The children also sing "Big Bird is sacked," a reference to Romney's saying he would stop taxpayer subsidies of the Public Broadcast System and frequent Obama campaign attack after Romney restated his intentions during the first presidential debate.
