A TV ad for Occupy Wall Street began appearing Nov. 5 on Bloomberg News, ESPN, CBS Sports and Fox News, among other networks and is booked through Nov. 7, according to a report by Mike Brunker on MSNBC.
The 30-second spot was produced by a filmmaker, who has already shot two more ads and hopes to do more. “I’m going to interview a banker or someone in finance, and build one around moving moments that I’ve seen there,” he told Brunker. “I also have a fantasy not yet realized of getting a lobbyist to acknowledge the despicable nature of his career.”
The purchase of air time was financed by donations from 168 citizens using a social contribution model created by the San Francisco-based LoudSauce ad agency.
