Ad Libs - Create Your Own Campaign Commercial

Mozilla and PBS Newshour have teamed up to create a the Ad Libs campaign commercial generator. Ad Libs allows you to create your own short campaign commercial featuring you as a candidate. Ad Libs is like Mad Libs as you fill in the blanks to create a story. To generate your commercial you need to sign in with your Facebook account. To fill in the blanks in the Ad Libs commercial creator you select pictures and quotes from your Facebook profile.

A neat bonus aspect of Ad Libs is that as you create your commercial you can watch a few clips of commercials from past campaigns. That's how I found this old Clinton campaign commercial from 1992.
