Matt Damon Makes A Convincing First Lady In New Awareness Ad
Continuing with our ongoing Defamer Decides 2008 political coverage (splashy logo forthcoming just as soon as we figure out how to work out another Photoshop 30-day free trial), we now bring you this new ONE campaign TV spot featuring Hollywood’s most likable superstar and enviable nape-haver Matt Damon. The ad features the pedostache-free actor star soberly addressing the camera about their poverty-combating efforts. Fans should be warned, however, that the strange voices that soon emerge from Damon’s lips are not the result of any multiple-personality disorders, secret hormone treatments, or Satanic possessions.
Rather, Damon was transformed through the magic of A/V editing into the comely mouthpiece for a wide variety of American voices, “among them Michelle Obama, Cindy McCain and Mayor Bloomberg.” It’s an effective gimmick, if a little unfair to John McCain, who now can’t help but hide his disappointment every time he rolls over in bed to the sound of his wife’s voice, only to find a smiling Cindy instead of that dreamycakes actor from the Bourne movies.
