CNN Highlights Pepsi and Ikea's Obama-Inspired Ad Campaigns

CNN correspondent Alina Cho devoted an entire report on Monday’s American Morning program to how the Obama presidential run has apparently served as an inspiration for ad campaigns by big corporations. Cho zeroed in on how the Pepsi logo and the Obama campaign logo were “strikingly similar,” both using “swirls of red, white, and blue,” despite the fact that Pepsi has used the color scheme since World War II.

Cho introduced her report by heralding how “[c]hange is coming to Madison Avenue” and explained how Obama might be a model for advertising agencies: “Think about it -- Obama is a winning product and he won on the promise of hope. So now companies like Pepsi want to use the same message in their campaigns, but will it work?”

Is this really Madison Avenue adopting Obama as an advertising model?

Is it possible that this is a sneak-peak at the new Illuminati/NWO/TPTB zeitgeist for the coming years?

Statements such as:

CHO (on-camera): If we’re talking about a country that is half Democrat and half Republican --

THALER: Oh, you know what? We’re all behind the president, and on the day of the inauguration, everybody in this country is going to be rooting for this man.

If one remembers that Thaler is truly a respected and practiced master at her profession, one may infer that this is statement is carefully crafted to incorporate language used by neo-con talking heads to justify support of Bush's decisions. However her use applies to Obama, and directly poses the argument to those that once said such things in reference to Bush that they must now deliver when it comes to Obama. Why aren't you rooting for Obama? Aren't you a patriot? A finely crafted statement, indeed.

Watch the video on the page linked, with accompanying transcript. It's surprisingly interesting, not for the overt statements, but what you see if views it with a critical eye and some reading between the lines.

Your thoughts?
