This morning, the Colorado Senate Republican minority comms office put out a video attacking Democrats for their supposed “overreach” in the 2019 session. We’re embedding it below, but we’ll warn you in advance that we got more than a little nauseous watching it–not due to its unpersuasive arguments, but the weird overexposed shaky-cam effect they used in iMovie or whatever to produce it:
Yikes! We’ve admittedly both seen and made a few videos that weren’t ready for prime time post-productionwise, but it was at least not on purpose. This weird shaky flashy thing they’ve done here seems to be deliberate, and that means there’s no good excuse for inflicting the resulting queasiness on the political water cooler class of Colorado. It may not be as bad as the episode of Pokemon that gave Japanese children seizures, but it’s not a pleasant experience.
On the other hand, the parodies more or less produce themselves! They’re at least more ironic before the headache sets in:
The moral of the story? Test these on somebody outside the office first.
