Reversing the candidate's races is a cute trick; now that I see it, I'm wondering what took so long! While Obama's hair is a bit freaky, the real problem is that the graphic designer who depicted McCain needed to do more fine tuning of the fine tones.
The ad agency Grey New York is responsible. Tor Myhren, its chief creative officer, said, "This is a non-partisan image. We wanted to address the race issue straight on." (Was Myhren tempted to say that the agency was addressing the issue "head on"?)
