Anybody currently watching Television in British Columbia has probably seen the Enbridge ad a few times already. Jobs! Prosperity! Environmental Regulation! It sounds like this Pipeline could really solve all of our problems!
However, with even a minor eye on the news it’s pretty easy to see that Enbridge seems to lack the primary abilities to run a pipeline. Leaks in Alberta. Leaks in Michigan. It’s actually surprising that the toilets in their office function properly.
So, to counter the maddening Enbridge ads that are trying to shove a pipeline down our throats (not to mention the Conservative Party of Canada’s anti-Mulcair ads) I think we need to fight fire with fire. I’m proposing the production and airing of the truth about Enbridge’s ability to run a pipeline. I’m thinking a working theme of:
Enbridge Clown College. Clowns are scary. These clowns are terrifying.
A brief disclaimer. I’ve never created an advertisement for television. I have no idea how to buy ad time on television or how much it will cost. But....I’m pretty confident that we can pull this off together. And hopefully we’ll attract the attention of some people that can fill some gaps in the knowledge base of my “team”.
