If the McCain campaign hired John Woo, Kevin Smith and Wes Anderson to create attacks ads, the results would be this satiric video. The first includes a lot of exaggerated body movement and Woo’s signature slow-motion standoffs. The Kevin Smith version parodies Clerks and inevitably incorporates a Stars Wars analogy of the political field, though it’s difficult to imagine replacing Han Solo with Joe Biden. The Wes Anderson parody is the most successful with its long-tracking shot and Bowie soundtrack.
