(Daily Caller) – A new video from the founders of a celebrated advertising agency features children “of the future” singing about the aftermath of a Mitt Romney presidency: A world where sick people are required to “just die,” the atmosphere is “frying,” gays can be “fixed” and “oil fills the sea.”
The children, who stare blankly at the camera throughout the video, even take pains to explicitly mention that they blame “mom and dad” for all those horrors.
The video — produced by the founders of the advertising agency Goodby Silverstein & Partners, which came up with the famous tagline “Got milk?” and boasts clients like Cheetos, Netflix, the National Basketball Association and Nintendo — asks viewers, “What Would The Children Of The Future Say If We Let Them Down This November?”
The two minute 21 second video concludes with black and white text instructing: “Don’t let it happen… vote.”
The brains behind the video are Jeff Goodby and Rich Silverstein, who in 1983 co-founded the San Francisco-based agency that would soon become Goodby Silverstein & Partners.
“The idea was to have kids from the future sing about a world that’s been defiled by us — by their parents,” Goodby told Co.Create, which reports that he is a registered “lapsed” Republican. “It was meant to be accusatory in some way. Something to put it in the context of some day this decision will be an even bigger one than it appears today.”
The video, which does not explicitly mention Romney, is not an official project of Goodby Silverstein & Partners, the agency’s communications coordinator, Meagan Phillips told The Daily Caller.
