Push-Up Contest With Governor Bobby Jindal
Governor Bobby Jindal has joined the viral video craze that other republican presidential candidates are participating in. In a video produced by Buzzfeed, Jindal is in a push-up competition against “the issues” which are taxes, Obamacare, hyphenated Americans and Jindal’s own widely panned response to the State of Union in 2009.
Political analyst Bernie Pinsonat isn’t sure how this will get him more support.
“It’s kind of silly. I don’t know if this is where political ads are going in the future,” Pinsonat said. “I hope not.”
GOP presidential hopefuls Ted Cruz, Lindsey Graham and Rand Paul have also taken time from their campaigns to shoot offbeat videos as a way of getting attention. Pinsonat says that’s apparently the new trend in national campaigns.
“They’re interesting; only because they’re trying to outdo each other with their one ad being sillier than the others,” Pinsonat said.
In the video, Jindal does 67 push-ups, while other people representing the issues, can’ t keep up, and Jindal is declared the winner. Pinsonat says it is telling that the front-runners for the republican nomination are not doing these kind of videos.
“It just looks silly,” Pinsonat said. “I’m not sure how the average voter in Louisiana would view it. They’d probably scratch their heads, and say, ‘What is this?’”
