GOP Fails At Being “Cool” With Millennials In Energy Ad (VIDEO)
Matt | On 20, Mar 2014
This ad is a metaphor for what is so wrong with the GOP these days. They are sorely out of touch with several groups of people — young people, or Millennials, in particular.
The ad above touts the need for an “all of the above” energy options at home — solar, wind, shale gas, oil, etc. Great options, but when was the last time you heard the Republican Party heavily promoting solar and wind energy? Their goal is for us to continue to rely on fossil fuels that pollute our environment because it gives us more “choice.”
It is a standard argument from conservatives in the energy industry.
The problem is that the ad is told from the point of view of Scott Greenberg, a young twenty-something sitting in a car with his “cool” glasses and jacket on. Oh yeah, and he’s supposed to be a Republican. The ad is bad acting at its finest because of the misplaced message and blatant reading from a teleprompter. Young people do not usually talk like he did in the ad. To me, there is little that is believable here.
Who approves this kind of messaging coming from the Republican National Committee? It is terrible…
