An ad for the reelection campaign of
President Barack Obama asks young people to not forget their gay and
lesbian friends on election day.
In the 30-second ad, titled
GottaRegister.com, a male announces asks, “What are you
going to tell them?” over images of young people playing video
games and having fun.
“You were just too busy? You didn't
think it mattered?”
“Is that what you're going to tell
your friends who can't get married?” the announcer asks as a gay
male couple is seen holding hands while walking in a park. “The
ones who couldn't serve openly in the military?”
“Why not have a different
conversation about how you voted for them,” the announcer adds.
The ad reminds viewers that Obama's GOP
rival, Mitt Romney, opposes marriage rights for gay couples and
opposed ending the military policy “Don't Ask, Don't Tell.” (The
