With funding from a political group known as Jews for Change, a web site called Aint Funny has been launched to influence the voters of the key battleground states of Pennsylvania, Ohio and Florida. The states where the voter registration records indicate a large number of older Americans age 50 years plus.
Ain’t Funny has produced a series of ads to be aired in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Florida featuring a cast of well known comedians, comic actors and writers.
Interestingly, not all of the performers are Jewish. The cast is a diversified group of concerned citizens. We think that’s an appropriately representative of people who support a candidate who has built the broadest multi-racial coalition in the history of American politics. Obama is truly a “uniter”. He is a candidate whose story could only have unfolded in America.
The ads feature Danny De Vito and his wife Rhea Perlman, writer and television producer Larry Gelbart, actress Valerie Harper, actor, producer, director Gary Marshall, brother of Penny Marshall, actor, producer, writer Carl Reiner, who starred in Ocean’s 11through 13, and father of actor director Rob Reiner; Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara, the parents of actor comedian Ben Stiller.
Watch as they remind older citizens their vote will determine the kind of life their grandchildren will have in this country.
