LOS ANGELES, Feb. 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- STUN Creative, a Los Angeles based advertising agency specializing in comedy production, has released an animated video called "TRAHM" (as in "Tron" Meets "Rahm") that's become an online hit. Lampooning Rahm Emanuel's successful, just concluded bid to become the next Mayor of Chicago, the video has received a tremendous amount of attention, including from movie critic, Roger Ebert.
On his blog, Ebert said, "I don't know who made this. I don't know why it was made. I don't know if it's pro-Rahm or anti-Rahm. All I know is I like it." The "TRAHM" video appears here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FbjjTCZNsHg
The animated piece, which stars a cartoon version of Rahm Emanuel appearing within the futuristic environment from the movie "Tron," is a pop culture "mash-up" that offers cameos by other animated characters, including Lady Gaga, Oprah and President Obama. Brad Roth and Mark Feldstein, founders of STUN and producers of the animated comedy, joked, "Did our 'TRAHM' video help tip the election in Rahm's favor and make him Chicago's next mayor? We'd certainly like to think so!"
