Obama Advertises in Video Games

We’ve been covering presidential campaign promotions since July of 2007 and we’ve seen a lot of different things particularly from the Obama campaign and supporters. They’ve come out with everything from ringtones to sneakers, and used promotions to rack up a record donor list and bring supporters into the campaign. Aside from logo merchandise, the Obama campaign has also purchased half-hour blocks of airtime later this month to reach out to voters and, in the latest development, has purchased billboards…inside video games. The screen shot below is from a game on the xBox 360 which just goes to show, they’re leaving no demographic to chance this year.
