They are trying to say vote for the causes you believe in because if you leave it up to these people they will vote against it. Problem is, only one in this campaign even comes close to working. (Catholic Preist vs. abortion rights) The others are iffy in their translation. Just because you are in the military doesn's mean you are anti gay, and not all females are against guns, and I don't even know what stereotype the other is trying to fullfill, but that is my take on it.

who's supposed to be the charity or the public interest behind this campaign?
Agree with brc 912: the priest ad is the only credible one. The others are forced. It's too evidently a school exercise.

The stereotypes were all meant to be a bit ambiguous, to say that you can't ever count on someone else to vote how you think they should or would, so you should vote for yourself.

These ads are so fucking lame it's unbelievable! So this ad is saying that 'this guy is a gay soldier' and 'if I'm a homophobe' then I should vote to get gay soldiers out of the army! Sound's like this ad's come from http://www.godhatesamerica.com/

Anyway, bigotry aside, Ministry of Sound (a UK nightclub) used a shocking and (damn right better campaign) to target the youth to vote. Use your vote, you know he'll use his. Check them here:

There was also a third ad but I can't find it. It showed a large men's public urinal with 'Piss on niggers' graffitid onto it. The strapline said, Use your vote, you know he'll use his. Somehow it makes me want to vote to get rid of racism, bigotry and sexism from our society.

Whatever you do don't put it in your book. Anything in your book for a non profit should be so damn good that the only negative comments are "wish I had thought of it" so start over and good luck.
I get it, I got it right away and I didn't think it was great right away.

Funny thing is that I hear that a large majority of people in the armed forces don't vote. They just know that they'll be taking orders, whatever they are, from the person in charge. Interesting point of view, if slightly misguided.
