Fred Davis Strikes!

WILMINGTON, Mass. – The white-maned adman who brought you “I’m not a witch, I’m you,” and “demon sheep” and “Boxer bimp” brings you: The Dada Jon Huntsman viral video campaign.

6 Days from Jon Huntsman Jr. on Vimeo .

In New Hampshire, I noticed a greater concentration of motorcycle riders than I’ve ever seen (discounting some special event like Rolling Thunder). I see Huntsman (or John Kerry, or Jay Leno) on a hog and I think: “rich guy’s hobby.” But I suppose most people consider it populism. The thrust of the Huntsman campaign thus far is: “Dudes, Jon Huntsman is awesome.”
