Who Is Behind the Creepy Future Children Project?

The Future Children Project ( link to video)

This very disturbing video has been making the rounds to promote the Obama Campaign and get out the vote.  It is the brainchild and pet project of Jeff Goodby, a founder of the award winning, San Francisco-based advertising agency Goodby Silverstein & Partners

Mr. Goodby, another wonderboy from Harvard , wrote the lyrics sung by the children’s chorus : 

Imagine an America
Where strip mines are fun and free
Where gays can be fixed
And sick people just die
And oil fills the sea

We don’t have to pay for freeways!
Our schools are good enough
Give us endless wars
On foreign shores
And lots of Chinese stuff

We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And we’re kinda blaming you
 
We haven’t killed all the polar bears
But it’s not for lack of trying
Big Bird is sacked
The Earth is cracked
And the atmosphere is frying
 
Congress went home early
They did their best we know
You can’t cut spending
With elections pending
Unless it’s welfare dough

We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And we’re kinda blaming you
 
Find a park that is still open
And take a breath of poison air
They foreclosed your place
To build a weapon in space
But you can write off your au pair
 
It’s a little awkward to tell you
But you left us holding the bag
When we look around
The place is all dumbed down
And the long term’s kind of a drag
 
We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And yeah, we’re blaming you
 
You did your best
You failed the test

Mom and Dad
We’re blaming you!

  1. Stepford children.

     
  2. Children of the Corn, or Stepford children? either way, they even look creepy.

     
  3. The kids in the video and their parents would fit right in — in Nazi Germany or Maoist China. Here’s Jeff Goodby sporting long hair and sinister dark glasses, looking like a child molester:

    • How right on! He does look like a child molester . . . or someone hooked on exposing himself! Certainly a seedy looking dude.

       
  4. Goodby is a scum agendy with no morals or ethics, forcing captive children to sing Obama praises smacks of North Korea. Hopefully the children in the ad were employees and weren’t beaten when they didn’t obey. Obviously Jeff has no values as he accepts government money from the Milk Producers via government law and returns the favor. I can’t imagine any future client wanting to hire this agency other than the Pelosi re-election campaign.

     
  5. The only creepy thing is the vitriol of all you haters in America. Leave the kids alone. Children are all beautiful and most of these kids have brains more powerful than the lot of you. Is everyone so ignorant as to believe that Obama or his “administration” had anything to do with this video? Anyone is free to make a video and they shouldn’t be targeted for it. These kids are talking about saving the planet, for goodness sake. People comparing that to Hitler youth is just silly and stupid.

     
    • Indoctrination, a socialist goal. Suggest you look into the history of Hitler’s youth and then get back to us regarding how there are no similarities here.

      If you believe the planet is dying then why are you using such a demon planet destroyer such as electricity? You ride a bike every where, grow your own food, and have had no children to help save the planet?

      These children are being used, as is preferred with libs to make a non-existent point and push fear mongering. Kids should be kids and not have to worry about a “dying” planet or politics.

       
    • Perhaps you failed to see how Obama and his admin used kids when pushing Obamacare? Why didn’t they leave the kids alone then? Because kids are an easy target to manipulate. Leave those kids alone!

       
    • Demonwife:

      Is that you, Michelle?

       
    • Really? Tell that to the guy who made the video that supposedly sparked the Libya attack. He was targeted big time

       
    • Yes, they are free to make a video, but they should not abuse children by so doing. This video is pathetic and communistic.

       
  6. This is almost child abuse!

     
    • Yes it is child abuse. And the parents need to be arrested and held to account for their actions. But since this is likely happening in “Sodom by The Sea” don’t hold your breath awaiting even a visit from their local Child Protection agency…

    The Amerikan National anathema, 2013
    “Obama is our savior, our hero.
    He is the noblest being in the whole wide world.
    For Obama we live,
    For Obama we die.
    Our Obama is our Lord,
    Who rules a brave new world.”
    (An updated rendition of a CHILDREN’S song sung for another politician in a prominent European country c. 1939-44.)

     
  8. Wow, not a word about the actual content of the children’s song like global climate change (which even former critics accept as real and serious), starving the poor to give tax cuts to the rich, or that we’d balance the budget by eliminating the Education Department, which Romney said to a private donors meeting and some commie journalist inappropriately taped outside of the meeting (a tactic not inconsistent with your former hero Andrew Brietbart?). I guess in the minds of the patrons of this site, these would be good things?
    Are you now going to try to annihilate me for disagreeing with your echo chamber here?

     
  9. Chutzpah…are you serious??? Do you really think that using children in anything political is right? Your argument is so weak it’s in a coma! Just like someone with a weak argument to try and throw out there such a statement as your last..you sound like a hormone ridden irrational teenager. wait,…are you? Anyhoo….I’m a political independent just in case your wondering and as most people who see this are smart enough to see right through the underlying message. There are MANY other ways to sing about the ills of possible climate change, starving people etc…. and this is not a very good way to do that. you just turned this around to point a finger at Romney…very slick but I saw right through that too….sad 🙁

     
  10. Chutzpah,

    You apparently can’t see that there are two sides to the global warming story – depends on which scientist you want to believe I guess. Even UN scientists debunk it. I’ll stick to my seasons, you stick to your global warming. Better quit using the computer though, that evil electricity can’t be too good for the environment.

    Where did I say cut federal funding to schools? I said get rid of the Education Department. Glad you mention though that they are in a miserable state. That’s what 30+ years of “progressive” education gets us.

    Like I said, show me where there are starving children running around America? Show me where there isn’t a private organization or local city/county agency where one can get assistance on top of the federal aid? It would be a great thing if we cut food stamps and got Americans working instead of trying to survive in this hapless economy. Don’t you think the 48 million on food stamps deserve better than what they’ve got in the last 3.5 years?

    I’ve tried offering debate. You’re the one throwing around ad hominen attacks blaming Fox News.

     
  11. Well, holy except for the short skirts and profiles of the Kardashians and other objects of objectification. Not that I mind short skirts, mind you, but I’m not sure how that adds to reasoned debate or factual accuracy either. Better than listening to Bill O’Reilly or Sean Hanity drone on though.

     
  12. DCG so you can’t take counter arguments, eh? you removed all of my posting except the most derisive ones. nice!

     
    • We can’t take counter arguments? HAHAHAHAHAHA, you delusional Leninist stooge.
      I’m deleting your comments because I’m just plain sick of you. Go get your own blog.

  13. @AuntieLuLu Why do you think he looks like a child molester? Because he is dressed in black, has on sunglasses, a hat and long hair? I dressed in black for years the fashion industry said it looked slimming. I quit when a very rude 7 year old said it wasn’t working. My son dresses in a lot of black and black and gray. He has long hair, has a hat similar to the one he is wearing and he wears sunglasses when outside to protect his eyes. My son is very fair skinned with red hair and he and I both think that black is an attractive color for his skin tone. I even bought him one of those really long black coats with grommets and some chains on it. I bought the hat also. A few times he has dyed his hair black. He has had many comments on his appearance about how smartly dressed he is. The only ones who have not liked it were the cops when they came to a house next door and said he must do drugs because he wears all black and has long hair. When he walks in this neighborhood in the middle of the night to the gas station ( He works odd hours so his sleep schedule is varied) :They stop him and get his name and address because they say if anything is stolen or broken into they want to know who to come see. They are harassing him just because of the way he looks an dresses. I wear only black pants and in the winter I have a long black cape or poncho, I have long hair so do I look like a child molester? Do I have a gun under my poncho? No one should judge someone just by the way they look.
