Editor’s Note: The NRA kicks off their voter registration drive with a humorous and thought-provoking ad. Thank you, Chuck Norris!
A suggestive ad by the NRA for its voter registration campaign will likely get tongues wagging.
The spot features a father talking to his son in a somber tone about something that’s not a toy, but is important to protect their family. He unlocks a case to reveal … a voter registration card.
The ad is part of the National Rifle Association’s Trigger the Vote campaign, aimed at increasing the number of registered voters — especially among gun owners. Andrew Arulanandam, public affairs director at the NRA, said the ad will run online and on cable backed by a seven-figure buy.
Actor Chuck Norris of Walker, Texas Ranger and The Expendables 2 will serve again as the campaign’s honorary chairman.
