Israel at 1:08 (“It’s strictly up to you!”)

by at 12:26 am

Below is a fantastic, catchy campaign ad for JFK from 1960. Notice anything around 1:08?

Now watch this video at the same spot (1:08):

“כן אנו יכולים” (ken anu yecholim, “yes we can,” in Hebrew)

Thanks to Josh, whose away message contained the JFK clip. Incidentally, while Googling for this post I came across this poster, “Yes Oui כן,” which perfectly sums up the status of Jackie and me as Jewish Obama voters in a French-speaking country.

Update: Samuel Wurzelbacher (aka Joe the Plumber) isn’t fooled. (via M.J.)

    You know, I had been wondering what creative types did for presidential campaigns before the internet existed. For example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=65I0HNvTDH4

    Now I know. Thank you.
