Is it just me or does anyone else find it a bit strange that Judge Wapner has been hired to appear in a political ad? For those of you too young to remember, Judge Wapner was the original judge in a television show known as “The People’s Court.” Those were the days before Judge Judy, et al. Every show ended with his sidekick saying, “Don’t take the law into your own hands, take ’em to court.”
After getting over the cheesy nature of the ad (it ends with an echoing, “No on 77. No on 77), I began to think … I wonder who they are going after with this ad. Unfortunately, it’s probably the same people who tuned into People’s Court to watch “justice being served.”
I wouldn’t be surprised to see Stone Cold Steve Austin make an appearance in a political ad.
