Biden Spanish-language ad becomes 'hot mess'

Politico

In the run-up to his expected presidential campaign announcement, former Vice President Joe Biden’s supporters cut a Spanish-language ad in South Florida over the weekend emphasizing healthcare, education and his biography.

The Saturday film shoot was a hushed affair — paid local actors signed non-disclosure agreements promising not to discuss the job. But some posted images on social media of the Fort Lauderdale commercial anyway, prompting a flurry of emails warning of legal exposure and requesting that those involved delete any images of the shoot and not talk to the media about it.

“We are in a hot mess with campaign and client because someone leaked footage,” read a Monday email to the actors obtained by POLITICO. The email surmised that the footage was from “some moms taking photo/video of their kids while they were being filmed.”

Biden’s spokesman, Bill Russo, said his team “wouldn’t comment on that” when asked Monday about the commercial shoot. It was unclear who was behind the commercial, whether it was Biden, his American Possibilities political committee or another group.

1. Spanish-language actors reading words in Spanish will do wonders for Biden's authenticity.

 

On location but in front of a green screen. Yikes.

2. This type of stuff is common in commercials. What's the issue?

 

Is it just because it's green-screened? I mean, unless Biden tries to foist it off as "on the streets interviews" or something, which would be patently dishonest after this, I don't see why this is even an issue. This practice in commercials is common use.

3. And the point of this

 

Posting is???????? How about posting positives about a chosen candidate instead of perceived negatives of another one? It'll get ugly here if we don't. So many good ones to choose from, don't you agree?
