Kanye West abandons first ad campaign in desperate bid for writing votes – Deadline


With just over three weeks before Election Day and a poll close to zero, increasingly desperate candidate Kanye West ran his first campaign ad today with prayers to convince voters to write to him on their ballot – more than once.“America,” says the notoriously puzzling and seemingly bewildered rapper and fashion designer. “What is the fate of America? What is best for our nation? Our people? What is just, true justice?

Advocating that Americans find global salvation in faith, the relatively high production-valued spot dropped this morning on social media, where it garnered over a million views relatively quickly. Then, since it’s about Kanye, the ad was pulled on Monday to be replaced with an almost identical ad. The only difference between the 1.0 ad and the over 270,000 2.0 ad views is the addition of a text on the screen near the end that says “Vision 2020”:

Donald Trump tested negative for coronavirus, says White House doctor

“As a people we are called to a purpose greater than ourselves,” West says in the ad. “We are not only a beacon to the world, but we must be servants of each other. Encourage each other, help each other to get up, ”he adds.

“Our fellow Americans, in order for us all to prosper together, we must act in faith, knowing that we are pursuing the right goals and doing the right things,” the contestant continued at the birthday party. “We will build a stronger country by building stronger families. Families are the building blocks of society, of a nation. As we turn to faith, we’ll be the kind of nation, the kind of people that God wants us to be.

Of course, for all the attention the almost self-proclaimed potential spoiler has received since his candidacy was announced on July 4, the Grammy winner hasn’t been so successful voting across the country. With an often-scattered, missing campaign consisting of GOP agents and meetings with Jared Kushner, West has passed official ballots in less than a dozen states.

Although even with this latest high-profile move, one wonders at this point how much of a spoiler the “Power” rapper can be to overtake Joe Biden for his old friend Donald Trump.

With the exception of solid blue Vermont, most of these states are majority Republican like Kentucky, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Utah, Idaho, Iowa, and Tennessee. Much to the chagrin of Western states, he is on the ballot in voter-rich California as the US Independent Party’s running mate with businessman Rocque “Rocky” de la Fuente leading the way. ticket.

While the intent of today’s ads appears to be a lost cause, the tone of it is well aligned with West’s evangelical stance in recent years. However, a more recent tweet about police brutality in Nigeria seems to have missed an opportunity with American voters written all over the place, despite the ark of justice West apparently wants:

Also, for all his kinship with the former Celebrity apprentice host and base, West has had to self-fund its bid to the tune of over $ 6.8 million so far. Additionally, with nationwide, regional and local advertising space nearly nonexistent as Election Day approaches, it’s extremely unlikely that anyone will see the 82-second spot on TV in the next few weeks – and that’s going to happen. against the goal. is not it?
