In a time when most political campaign ads (especially in America) are nothing more than attacks, mudslinging and often a distortion of the truth (or outright lies), here's something refreshing, smart and innovative.
The cast of 'The West Wing' has reunited to make a campaign ad for Bridget Mary McCormack, who is running as a non-partisan candidate for the Michigan State Supreme Court.
She's also the sister of Mary McCormack, who played the U.S. Deputy National Security Adviser Kate Harper for three seasons on the show.
It's called 'Walk and Talk the Vote,' and everyone from Martin Sheen and Allison Janney to Bradley Whitford and Lily Tomlin are here.
The ad uses the same storytelling style made famous by the show, all the while explaining why it's important for people to vote on the nonpartisan section of the ballot. And why they should vote for Bridget Mary McCormack.
It's educational, entertaining, funny, and there are some great lines, including an 'Apocalypse Now' reference by Sheen and a Louis C.K. joke from Whitford.
If you didn't get the Louis C.K. reference, Bradley Whitford (who played White House Deputy Chief of Staff Josh Lyman) has developed a bit of reputation online as looking like Louis C.K.
