Retro Election Day: Vote 88, And Have Your Say The American Way

Shades of Apple's famous "1984" commercial... this spot ran frequently in Hawaii when I was in high school in 1988. I still remember it well: Shot at Hawaii's State Capitol, the spot imagines what might transpire if people don't vote: A Big Brother-like government.

Vote 08!

More videos to check out this election day:
