Brad Pitt recently showcased his support for the presidential candidate, Joe Biden by narrating a campaign ad. The ad portrays the idea of Democrat as the unifying force America needs.
The campaign ad was a minute long and titled, ‘Make Life Better’. The ad was aired during game 4 of the MLB World Series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Tampa Bay Rays. Brad is heard narrating, “America is a place for everyone”. The footage of Biden greeting voters of all ages with hugs, handshakes, and high-fives before the pandemic.
The actor narrates that those who chose this country, fought for it, including both Democrats and Republicans or both. He went on explaining that all Americans are looking for the same thing which is someone who understands their hopes, dreams, and pain.
Brad narrates, “To listen, to bring people together, to get up every day and work to make life better for families like yours. To look you in the eye, to treat you with respect, to tell you the truth. To work just as hard for the people who voted for him as those who didn’t. To be a president for all Americans.”
The campaign ad concludes with a clip of Biden and his wife walking across a stage as the ‘Biden Harris’ logo flashes on the screen. The candidate says, “I approve this message”. Brad was nowhere in the commercial but his voice can always be recognized.
The actor has never been vocal about his political alliance but he has visited Biden back in 2012 when he was the vice president. The Fight Club alum has shared his liberal views at the 2019 Oscars. He won the Oscar for the Best Actor and he referenced Donald Trump’s impeachment trial in his acceptance speech.
Brad had played Dr. Anthony Fauci on Saturday Night Live over the summer where he poked fun at Trump. The actor received an Emmy nomination for his performance. However, Brad wasn’t the only one who lent his voice to Biden’s campaign. One of them was narrated by Sam Elliott.
The amount spent on the campaign ad and for booking a prime time spot was not revealed. However, CNN reported that the ad buy for last week’s World Series game was assumed to be $4 million. The amount is less than what the campaign spends on advertising in the battleground state of Iowa this fall.
The campaign ad was also broadcast in several other programs, including the five NFL games. Biden’s team raked in a record $383million in donations in September, bankrolling its advertising spending spree in the final stretch of the election.
