RNCC Uses 'Duck Hunt' in New Political Attack Ad

August 14, 2013 - James Fudge

A new attack ad from the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) pays homage to the classic Nintendo light gun game Duck Hunt while assailing Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu of Louisiana. The ad features the famous backdrop of the Duck Hunt game and displays ducks marked with various issues - such as Obamacare, energy, taxes, and 12,000 jobs for the Gulf Coast - that Sen. Landrieu "misses" on. At the end of the 41-second ad, a familiar dog laughs at all of the antics.

“Mary Landrieu’s got bad aim. On healthcare, energy, taxes, and jobs. She keeps firing and missing,” the ad says. “It is time for Mary to start shooting straight for Louisiana and stop masquerading as someone she is not.”

You can watch it to your left. Sen. Landrieu is one of the most vulnerable Democratic incumbents in the Senate. Republicans are hoping to take that seat in 2014, but first they have to figure out who will go up against her via a primary process...

Re: RNCC Uses 'Duck Hunt' in New Political Attack Ad

Kind of ironic that the NRA conservatives chose to blame video game violence for the Newtown shootings, then make an attack ad which utilizes a reference to a game which actually required the use of a gun to play.
