Tom in the boardroom

A corporate leader for the NDP? In a subliminable way? Can't help but highlight what stood out in the ad, "Tom," not Thomas, chose to deliver his intro in a modern corporate boardroom looking place. There are no accidents in advertising, after all. Tom is in the skyscrapers with the rest of corporate Canada.

Otherwise, it had the feel of a Ford F-150 ad at the beginning mixed with a touch of Economic Action Plan ad (older guy jogging). Safe.

The bigger question, however, is the elephant in the room...when will the Conservatives respond to Mr. Mulcair's entry on to the national stage now that the NDP are advertising? Or will they bother at all?
