Strictly from ad ad critic point of view, that man was an excellent casting choice.
According to EFF:
“The ads, which were paid for through crowdfunding, were scheduled to run on local (Little Rock) ABC, NBC, and Fox stations this week, but were taken off the schedule when the stations got the (Exxon) memo. In February, Exxon pulled the same stunt when Comcast was set to air the ad during the president’s State of the Union address.
You can download Exxon’s long memo at the EFF link.
“Here at Exxon we hate your children.” – Factually incorrect and cannot be substantiated.”
Little Rock is close to the Exxon Mayflower tar sands oil spill site.
Here’s a list of locations and stations where the commercial has aired this year.
- The trooper who pulled over Sandra Bland was disciplined for "unprofessional conduct" in the fall of 2014, records show.
- Dozens of people inhaled balloons full of laughing gas outside British parliament in protest against proposed drug laws.
- An Ohio man is suspected of fatally shooting his neighbor in the face before running her over with a lawn mower.
