Paris Hilton v John McCain (aka "white-haired dude")


Paris Hilton, known for phrases such as "that's hot," celebrity based on family-wealth, and a Carl's Jr ad that briefly features a Carl's Jr product, decided to make a "political ad" of her own! Aimed at the ad featuring both Britney Spears & Hilton's images, produced by John McCain's presidential campaign, she rather humorously satirizes the presidential campaigns and asserts her own policy initiative.

While she may gain a few write-in votes, the highlight (as someone who regularly teaches Gender & Pop Culture @ TCNJ) of her video is the looming question:

Is there really a difference between celebrity (ala Paris) & politics (ala McCain and any other politicians whose names are well-known)?

Here's her spoof, enjoy!
