The Greens go viral

With the advent of YouTube, viral advertising will probably be a big thing this election. Why pay big bucks for expensive TV time (which counts against your broadcasting cap) when you can simply post something to the net and rely on friends, supporters, and people who think it is cool to spread it for you? The Greens seem to have figured this out, and so their latest political ad is a bit more quirky (and also pointed) than you'd expect:

What's scary though is that our politicians and media seem to overwhelmingly focus on the trivia rather than the policy. But I guess arguing about who hit who and whose fault it was is so much easier than thinking about whether excluding agriculture from the ETS is really a good idea...
