The other day I asked if PSAs are or were ever effective. I’m still not sure I can answer that, but here is an ad that makes me think a relevant PSA can do good.
Minus the fact that they copied th E*Trade commercials, I think it gets the point across quite well. I think that the use of Palin just ads to the comedic factor. I’m sure this isn’t what they were going for, but it is one of the reason’s I think it might be an effective spot. I do question whether or not the intended target audience will understand the significance of who Bristol Palin is because I do not think they are interested enough in politics to be familiar with her or to see why she would be relevant.
Good spot either way and worth the laugh at the very least. Not that teen pregnancy is a laughing matter. Just want to make that clear.
