Funny! Guess again -- I was the *other* (or perhaps *the original*) political video this year -- rooting for the other team, as it happens.
I have refrained from sharing this here due to the political content of the ad. But setting the politics aside
, it is certainly interesting that my little video was seen on Good Morning America, Nightline, and was featured prominently on the national McCain-Palin campaign web site. Furthermore, it was referenced and quoted in newspaper articles and on blogs across America (including being the first
political magic video posted on iTricks.com). It was also recently added to the "Living Room Candidate" political advertisement collection at the Museum of the Moving Image in NYC as their selected example of the new impact of video-blogging and self-reporting on election advertising. This collection includes political television ads going back to Eisenhower.

Regardless of anyones political leanings, I think it is interesting and exciting to note that a magic performance (and a close-up trick, at that) was featured in so many places in the coverage of this recent US election.
