Come help film a commercial

You've all seen this video by now.  It was hugely successful at accomplishing its purpose - over 20,000 views on YouTube.  It's time for us to move to tv.  Tomorrow, we will be filming a commercial with higher production values - a commercial for television.  Again, you'll have to trust me on this, but this thing has taken off in ways I never envisioned when I started.  At first it was gonna be a small radio buy.  Now we're looking at some serious tv time.

So we're filming tomorrow.  (Not me personally, but an incredible talent that's volunteered his time.)  We need Virginians willing to appear in the ad to come to the Telegraph Rd. Holiday Inn (2460 Eisenhower Ave. Alexandria VA) tomorrow sometime between 1:30 and 3:30; we'll try to get people in and out as fast as possible, but it will probably take around 45 minutes.  The Holiday Inn is just off the Eisenhower Ave. metro stop.


Our production guy, Eric, wants to sit down and have a brief, ten or fifteen minute conversation with each person about Senator Allen's views on race.  We want twenty or so people to come by, and hope to get a couple hundred minutes of video.  We'll then go through and create an organic advertisement, simple shots of people talking about the Senator.

I'll have articles and research on Allen that you can read while you're there, if you're not completely up on the most recent stuff he's been implicated in, though these videos are really most of what you need to see:

I'll also have sandwiches, coffee, some soda and snacks (as in, free lunch).

We really need volunteers.  Not only is this a chance to get a poor excuse for a human being out of the United States Senate, but it's a chance to participate in a real experiment in grassroots political organizing.
