One of the things I love about a presidential election year is the humor that happens. There are just so many funny takes on a presidential election. My husband and I have enjoyed specials on network TV as well as places that stream their own content, but the one that makes us laugh the most is Captain Obvious.
Captain Obvious Is Running For President
Captain Obvious is running for President; the only way he knows how….by physically running. Along the way, he’s providing hilarious commentary on what has already proven to be an “interesting” election year.
I can’t even handle it… but it gets better. Captain Obvious has a microsite called Captain Obvious Runs For President that’s full of video recaps of his visit to each of the 50 states, merchandise, and GIFs that are so funny they make me cry.
Seriously… Captain Obvious can turn bad day around in 3 seconds. And every time I need a mic drop, he’s right there with one.
He’s also on Twitter @CaptainObvious. Daily, he treats his 322k followers to hilarious commentary and videos. I’m fairly certain he lives inside my head… he tweets all of the things I’m not brave enough to say out loud.
Captain Obvious is supported by Hotels.com, the obvious choice. They’re providing him with great places to stay while he travels the nation. because they believe in simplicity as much as he does – and he’ll need a place to sleep at night. They’ll be providing him with running shoes, socks, shorts and everything else he needs for his run.
They see the presidential race as a creative opportunity to utilize Captain Obvious as a way to be a part of, share in the broader cultural experience and to engage.
Make an obvious choice…. follow along with Captain Obvious this election year!
