A new ad launched Wednesday calls on Americans not to believe Big Oil's lies -- or, more directly, their lobbying efforts. The new $100,000 national cable ad campaign was launched by VoteVets, a political action committee with roughly 100,000 members nationwide.
The video clip features an ad run by the American Petroleum Institute which is spending "millions to scare us," says a voice-over.
The narrator is Dante Zappala who lost a brother in Iraq; Zappala suggests he lost him to Big Oil.
"My big brother went to Iraq to keep us safe," Zappala says. "He came home in a flag-draped coffin. America lost another hero. Big Oil wants to talk about costs? Don't let Big Oil lie to you about what our dependence really costs."
