Scott Brown’s new campaign ad titled “Security” features the New Hampshire candidate standing in an airport talking about security procedures at U.S. airports compared to security conditions at the U.S.-Mexico border:
But it appears Brown isn’t really in an airport — and instead in front of a green screen with stock video footage of an airport from Shutterstock superimposed during editing:
Use of green screen and stock footage in political advertising isn’t unheard of — it appeared President Obama was green screened into a factory in a jobs-related video in 2011.
In another recent ad, titled “Respect,” Brown’s campaign is said to have chosen a “local venue” for the ad in “one of the log cabin-looking outbuildings on the grounds of former New Hampshire House Speaker Doug Scamman’s farm.” But it appears to be another stock photo from Shutterstock.
Brown’s campaign did not return a request for comment.
