It will go down as one of the most vicious and, at times, truly bizarre presidential campaigns of modern history. But it’s also historic in another way, its use of stock items from Envato.
Welcome to the Envato Famous Five – 5 Envato items used in this year’s Presidential Campaign.
Morning again for Marco Rubio
While it was certainly swept up in the waterfall of scandals since, early on in the campaign this gaffe by Marco Rubio made headlines. And at the centre of the controversy was an Envato item.
In his campaign ad, ‘Morning Again’, Rubio talked about how America had lost its way. After closer inspection, however, it seemed as if he was the one who’d gotten lost, with the video featuring shots of Vancouver Canada, rather than America.
RockfordMedia’s ‘Boats Passing Near The City At Sunrise’ plays right as this video begins, under the deep voiced delivery of its tagline, a hark back to Ronald Reagan’s ‘Morning In America’ campaign of the 80s.
And, as expected, he copped a lot of flack for it. Including on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
Some great exposure for us! Not so great for Rubio.
He was the great hope for the GOP, at a time when the party still possessed a glimmer of hope that Donald Trump wouldn’t be its eventual nominee.
Ted Cruz fought a hard fight, this political season. And he used a bunch of Envato items along the way.
The Cruz campaign offers a great example of how you can use Envato items to great effect. But also of how even the most fantastic use of them, can’t turn around an election.
And finally, the woman who would become the first female president of the United States, used an Envato item in one of her campaign videos.
Hillary Clinton’s campaign ad ‘Always’ was designed to distinguish her from her eventual rival, Donald Trump, emphasizing the work she’d done throughout her career for the needs of children.
Simple, and pretty effective.
And with that, another election cycle concludes. Those were the 5 Envato items used in this year’s U.S. presidential campaign.
Congratulations to all the authors who had their work featured by candidates republican and democrat. And congratulations to the new president of the United States.
