This TV commercial “Body Armor” was a multiple award winner at the national Pollie Awards competition sponsored by the International Association of Political Consultants (IAPC). Produced for VoteVets, a national political organization of Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans, versions targeting Republican incumbent U.S. Senators were run in 8 states. In all but one, the incumbent was defeated. This commercial was widely cited as a major factor in those elections.
Almost everyone knew the story of big shot Washington lobbyist Jack Abramoff and followed his trip to prison. But nobody had heard about a Native American tribe that Abramoff had swindled: the Alabama-Coushatta Tribe of Texas. This film was designed to inform members of the Texas Legislature as well as voters in key legislative districts. It has been cited nationally and received both Pollie and Tellie awards.
This Tellie Award winning spot was designed to be simple, but powerful. In the immediate aftermath of hurricane Katrina, children’s advocacy groups spotted a move in Congress to slash funding for children’s services. The Media Guys were called on to create and produce a commercial that ultimately helped the groups to block Congress from enacting the cuts.
This TV & Internet spot won several national awards including both Pollie and Tellie Awards. U.S. Senator Rick Santorum was running for reelection in Pennsylvania in what was expected to be a close race. Brought into the campaign to help unseat Santorum by the children’s advocacy organization “VoteKids,” the MediaGuys created and produced a TV spot that was played throughout the state, ultimately noted as a major factor in Santorum’s downfall and electoral loss.
