Bryan Parker’s Visually Stunning New Ad
OAKLAND | MAYOR | A new campaign commercial from mayoral candidate Bryan Parker airing on Oakland cable may be the best of this election cycle.
The 30-second spot, titled, “The House Divided,” features an elaborate editing sequence that makes Parker appear to be simultaneously walking toward the viewer at over 30 iconic locations in Oakland.
The commercial created by a Bay Area production company named Rockbridge was shot over many days, said Parker, and was inspired by an Australian tourism advertisement.
Parker says his campaign wanted to use the commercial to highlight Oakland City Hall as divided and ineffective. “However, there are beautiful parts all over Oakland that can fully thrive if given equal opportunity,” said Parker.
The commercials began airing Monday on BET, CNN, CNBC, ESPN and additional networks the Parker campaign believes captures its target base of Oakland voters.
