5 Most Annoying Oklahoma Political Ads

Happy Monday, my fellow Oklahomans! We are only 8 days away from the election, which means we only have to withstand approximately 192 more hours of political campaign ads before we are again free to be willfully ignorant of our own government’s misdoings. As a registered independent in this great state, I am sick of getting mailers, emails, texts, and ads from both sides of the political aisle.

But no campaigning irritates me as much as the YouTube ads that play in between my vine compilations. After seeing them for the 1,347th time this month, I don’t think the ads accomplishing what the candidates hoped for, after all. In fact, here are 5 political ads on YouTube that are achieving the goal of annoying Oklahoma voters.

What the ad is trying to accomplish:

The ad wants to paint Kendra Horn as a fiscally conservative, attentive Oklahoma congresswoman who is somehow looking out for the best interest of her constituents by rejecting a stimulus package and medicare for all in the middle of a pandemic.

What the ad actually accomplishes:

Motion sickness.

What the ad is trying to accomplish:

Stephanie Bice wants to appear to be a relatable, family-oriented person by talking directly to the camera about her support of the oil and gas industry while bumping elbows with her husband and kids. She separates herself from the competition by insinuating her opponent works for Nancy Pelosi, while claiming she’ll work for the oil overlords Oklahomans themselves.

What the ad actually accomplishes:

Mistrust. Her family is seen doing many questionable activities. For starters, what Oklahoma child chooses to eat a plant for breakfast? Why are there 2 breakfast plates for 4 people? And who can afford to put 30 seconds worth of cream cheese on the average breakfast bagel in this economy? Something is awry.

What the ad is trying to accomplish:

This ad is attempting to depict Abby Broyles as a leftist who will use her journalistic powers to implement a “radical, socialist agenda” that elects Biden, takes our guns, and raises our taxes. The ad claims that Abby’s policies are better suited for a “liberal” state like California. Like a lizard under a tank lamp in Pet Smart, the ad basks Jim Inhofe in warm sunlight next to a pumpjack in an attempt to assure voters that the future of the oil industry is bright under Inhofe’s leadership.

What the ad actually accomplishes:

Making Abby look damn good. If Jim really wanted to paint Abby in a bad light, he shouldn’t have used his own face as a foil.

What the ad is trying to accomplish:

This ad portrays Inhofe as an elderly, out-of-touch, career politician who fails to show up to cast votes almost as often as he embarrasses his constituents.

What the ad actually accomplishes:

Nothing. There was absolutely zero new information here.

What the ad is trying to accomplish:

The ad provokes the tough questions. What is best for our nation? What is true justice? What is Kim Kardashian’s husband looking at? It also calls voters to cast their ballots for a candidate who will put God first and restore prayer in our society. A vote for Kanye is a vote for Jesus Christ himself.

What the ad actually accomplishes:

By placing the responsibility on voters to better the world and calling us to pray for our nation, it shows us that Kanye really isn’t that different than the other candidates on the ballot in this state. So Oklahomans, it’s time to pick your poison.
