Best Political Commercial -- 2002 Campaign (2003)

"Moment of Silence"

The fall 2002 campaign season was among the noisiest, and dirtiest, on record. So it came as a blessed relief when Bighorn Ballot produced a spot in which a peaceful nature scene was supplemented at its conclusion with a graphic reading "This moment of political silence brought to you by Bighorn Ballot, sponsor of Issues 28 and 29." Since both of those measures were rejected by voters, though, don't expect the experiment to be repeated again by anyone other than the folks at Rocky's Autos, who've used a similar concept the past two holiday seasons. But the tranquility was nice while it lasted.
