Bernie Sanders' Perfect Campaign Ad Was Already Filmed (in 1912).

Here is "The Old Way and The New." This 1912 film is the first known use of moving pictures in a political campaign. It promotes the new way of using small $1 campaign donors behind Democrat Woodrow Wilson against the old way of cartoonish oligarchs' $1,000,000 donations supporting Republican William Howard Taft and ex-Republican Teddy Roosevelt (Bullmoose).

Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.

No need to adjust your sound. This is a silent film.
