In recent weeks, MTV announced it would start accepting ad dollars for political spots for the first time. Now that an ad - an anti-
"Both Ways Barack"
- has made its debut,
teamed up with MoveOn.org to release a response in support of Obama.
According to the
New York Times
Boy Meets World
joined her for "It Could Happen to You," which is running on Comedy Central. The ad spoofs other commercial styles, including one specific spot that should be familiar to anyone who had a TV in the 1980s.
Is Benson's foray in political messaging effective, or does it fall flat?
and weigh in.
