If you combine “Schoolhouse Rocks” with “Beavis and Butthead,” you get former Texas Governor and current Presidential candidate Rick Perry’s new web video, “Economic Freedom: An Animation.”
And yes, it’s just as awesome as it sounds…
The video, titled, “Economic Freedom: An Animation,” features a man driving by signs sporting President Obama’s campaign slogans and listening to gloomy news reports on the radio. Eventually the protagonist flees to Texas where his standing of living appears to markedly improve.
Of course the press being the press, some are mocking it, while others call it different and kinda cute. Unfortunately the video is getting buried under an avalanche of Donald Trump stories, which is awful because this really is brilliant. Like we keep saying, culture is where the game is won. Lightening up and doing fun things like this video, while also encouraging donations, helps reach an audience that Rick Perry needs to reach.
An audience, mind you, that only knows Perry from his 2012 debacle, or from the parody the the mainstream media presents. This video just may help change that.
More of this, please. And less of reality stars who aren’t actually conservative (no matter how much traffic he sends to your website) that are going to end up dropping out of the race anyway.
