We get a lot of Tennessee political ads here. There's this candidate who comes out and says, "I guess you've been seeing a lot of my opponent's ads." But the thing is, he says it in front of a GIANT SCREEN featuring his opponent's face. Meanwhile, post-production trickery makes it look as if the candidate - THE GUY WHOSE AD IT IS - is as tiny as an ant in the shadow of this GIANT SCREEN FEATURING HIS OPPONENT. Are you that candidate? My advice is STOP MAKING COMMERCIALS IN WHICH YOU ARE REALLY TINY AND A GIANT IMAGE OF YOUR OPPONENT LOOMS OVER YOU.
