A few months ago, a new Video competition was announced. It was being done by a newish group, http://www.moveon.org/, and the idea was to make a 30 second advert for or against George Bush. All the results would be licensed under a creative commons license for general release, and the best would be aired on TV.
More than 1000 people entered, and the best 15 are available for download from http://www.bushin30seconds.org/
They're all really good, so I'd suggest people watch a few, especially those of you who are US voters!
They are stunning, having just watched them all I'm really not sure which is best. Watch them now

Once you've gone to http://www.bushin30seconds.org/ and decided you'd rather not watch these embedded in a web browser, these links might be more convenient:
I don't know what happened to 2. It's not listed or downloadable.
But otherwise.. I have to agree, these are good. Very good. The question is whether these sorts of things will actually be anything more than preaching to the converted.
Well, for anyone with high speed net, follow Dom's links. For anyone I know who doesn't, shout and I'll post them to you
I'm also tempted to try to coerse the files into MPG format, then make a VCD of them
As for the videos themselves, Bush's margins were very slim (well, negative, but still slim in the places that mattered). If they can make a few tens of thousands in the right places think, then that ought to be enough
