Classic television ads are few and far between. And only occasionally do they blend into the politic dialect (see: "Where's the beef?" Mondale v. Hart, 1984).
The "Wasssssup" Budweiser spots were -- for avid television watchers -- one of those memorable ad moments that had pop culture significance. Now, the very same characters are reprising almost identical roles in a short clip on behalf of the Obama campaign.
And... it actually works.
Here is the original, for those interested in making a trip down memory lane to the days when things were simpler and the beer a bit smoother.
The group to credit for the new spot is Chopshop @ Believe Media a filmmakers boutique that puts out "original short film programming."
