Viral and profane pro-Obama ads channel tradition of Jewish humor

By Dan Merica, CNN

Washington (CNN) – When it comes to reaching voters, the co-founders of a Jewish super PAC aimed at re-electing President Barack Obama have this tip for you: Use humor, even if it isn’t kosher.

Two campaign videos produced by the Jewish Council for Education and Research – one featuring actor Samuel L. Jackson, the other comedian Sarah Silverman – have received a flood of attention over the past few weeks. A foul-mouthed Silverman pushes people to do whatever it takes to make it to the polls in spite of voter ID laws, while an uncensored Jackson orders disenchanted Obama supporters to “wake the f*** up” and get to work.

While Silverman warns viewers about being kept out of the polls, introducing herself as “your Jewish friend Sarah," Jackson, who voiced the recent bedtime story for parents “Go the F**k to Sleep,” rhymes his warning to voters, in a video that's been seen over a million times on YouTube.

“We're all on our way if Romney has his way; he's against safety nets. If you fall, tough luck; so I strongly suggest that you wake the f*** up.”

The unique approach is rooted in a “tradition of Jewish humor,” said Mik Moore, co-founder of the super PAC, which has raised over $200,000 so far this election cycle and has dedicated itself to advancing issues that Jewish voters are concerned about. He added that these ads were “trying to tap into” that tradition.

Moore, a political and communications campaign strategist, launched the group in 2008 with Ari Wallach, a consultant and social entrepreneur. It was in response to what they saw as a distortion of then-candidate Obama’s character and record, particularly on issues that were important to Jewish voters.

The group’s signature has been its comedic productions. In 2008, Silverman got on board, becoming the face and attitude behind “The Great Schlep,” a viral video aimed at getting Jewish grandchildren to travel to Florida, visit their grandparents and persuade them to vote for Obama.

In the video, Silverman jokes about the large concentration of older Jews in Florida, playing up the stereotypes associated with Jewish grandparents living there, a love for tracksuits being just one of them.

“If you knew that visiting your grandparents could change the world, would you do it?” asks Silverman, who writes her own videos. “Of course you would. You’d have to be a douchenozzle not to.”

Moore and Wallach know Silverman’s humor is, in many ways, self-deprecating to Jews. But according to the duo, that is a staple of Jewish humor.

“This is the humor that we were raised on; it resonates with us,” Wallach said. “Jewish humor is inherently never mean or vindictive or about making fun of anyone. It is about the kind of absurdity that is life.”

Jewish humor traces its roots to some of the religion’s founding documents.

In an essay on biblical humor, Hershey H. Friedman, a professor of marketing at the City University of New York, outlines this deep-rooted tradition.

“The Hebrew Bible employs many sorts of humor, but its purpose is not to entertain,” writes Friedman. “Much of the humor found in the Hebrew Bible has a purpose: To demonstrate that evil is wrong and even ludicrous, at times. The punishments meted out to wrongdoers are often designed to mock them and to hoist them by their own petards.”

In the Book of Proverbs, for example, fools, lazy people and senseless women are all openly made fun of.

“Like snow in the summer and like rain at harvest, so is honor unbefitting for a fool,” reads Proverbs 26:3. “It is better to live on a corner of a roof than in a house of companionship with a quarrelsome wife,” Proverbs 25:24 says.

Jewish humor has changed a great deal from the time of Moses, but the principles of being self-deprecating and absurd remain. Moore says the thing that separates Jewish comedy is the way such comedians play up their identities.

“Some Jewish performers hide their Jewishness to fit in,” Moore said. “Jewish comics do the opposite. It is the nature of their comedy. You accept whatever it is you are.”

And that’s what made Silverman a perfect partner in this super PAC venture.

Her language may not be kosher for all, but Wallach says the decision to stick with Silverman and work with Jackson was a calculated one. The group isn't not making these ads for children or seniors but rather for the millions who have made its videos viral.

Going forward, Moore says, the group plans to build websites around issues it views as important, possibly venture into print advertising and, of course, roll out more videos. Already, he says, it has about half a dozen more in mind.

  1. Ted Turner of CNN

    Hello everyone Im Ted Turner. Im a proud democrat and liberal and believe anyone who doesn’t agree with us can suck it. Here at CNN we have a proud tradition of acting like we are unbiased. We are the best in the news industry at seeming unbiased, far better than MSNBC and FOX news, they could never come close. But the problem with seeming unbiased is that we can’t just throw our liberal ideas into your face. At the same time we want you all to ‘decide for yourselves’ that those republicans and conservatives are un-American, Nazi, fascists, slave drivers that want to destroy america. The only way we can do that is by finding no name videos like this one and call it news, we make sure to put a link in our “news” article so you can see Samuel Jackson shamelessly cuss in front of a 7 year old. I hope you all enjoy……your friends from CNN

      First of all I may not work At CNN anymore, but that doesnt mean my puppet strings aren’t still attached. Second, who the hell cares about this Samuel Jackson? I’m freaking Ted Turner, the only work he could get these days was making belligerent political adds that are too hot to be shown on cable. He has me and CNN to thank for the publicity.

    Looks like there are a lot of Fox News watchers responding here. How do I know this? Because I watch Fox News just to see how distorted the real news is on their channel. It is like living in a different world when you listen to their spin and what they actually report. They leave out any and I mean any news that favors Democrats or Obama. They are not even close to being Fair and Balanced! Fox is an embarrassment to Journalism.

    I have seen the videos in question and gosh darn, they are funy. I can understand being a self-righteous Republican and seeing an opportunity to spout fake outrage and indignation. Black people and Jews have no right to use offensive words or make jokes about nice, rich white men. Who ever heard of a Black or Jewish comedian any way?? This Sarah Silverman person seems to think that Jewish Americans are Americans and not Israelis. Forget that Romney would send the children of the poor and middle-class to fight a war started by Israel because he received millions of campaign dollars from Israel.

      Is there any other choice? Apparently yes, since all the polls show that most states will go
      for Obama and he will be re-elected by a comfortable electoral margin.
      Of course you could be one that believes the polls are all lying and that Obama is a Muslim and he was born
      in Africa, or Asia, or is from MARS.

    • UDidntBuildThat

      Well Patrick we know Obama's position on jobs, taxes, foreign policies, economy etc. Hey Obama even offered to pickup the tab on taxpayer dime ofcourse to delay defense contractors fr laying people off until after the elections. How is all of that working out for u?

      October 2, 2012 at 12:49 pm |
    • UDidntBuildThat

      Well Obama-sheeple,
      Obama's position on taxes, it will go up thanks to Obamacare
      Jobs – 8.1% oh but it would have gone up but Obama told the defense contractors taxpayers will float them some money until after the elections – just don't lay anyone off yet.
      Foreign policy- well we handed Egypt & Liyba to the Muslim Brotherhood. Al Qaeda flags were hoisted on several US embassies, Oh I almost forgot, the terrorists attack on anniv. of Sept 11 which resulted in death of 4 incl. our beloved Ambassador, who was sodomized, tortured, & dragged thru the streets of Benghazi. All this while Obama flies to Vegas for fundraisers, goes on Letterman & the View and shrugged his responsibilities as President of US. But the icing is to spend the past 2wks lying to America that it was not a terrorist attack but that it was a spontaneous attack by demonstrators.
      Yep lets have more of this b/c the people are that stupid.
      So to recap –

      October 2, 2012 at 1:00 pm |
    • CosmicC

      @ UDidntBuildIt – I suspect you don't inconvenient facts, but I'll try anyway: Every recovery from every recession since WW II has been the result of government spending on infrastructure. Every recession in the past 30 years has either been caused or deepened by tax cuts which resulted in reduced federal spending on things other that debt payments. If you want the economy to improve history shows we need to spend money at about 21% of GDP. That requires raising taxes. Cutting spending may be needed to deal with debt, but doing so now will drive another recession.

      Obama isn't anti Israel, he's anti-zionist settler BS that destabilizes an already unstable region. Obama had the audacity to suggest that Israel keep to the borders they agreed upon for the good of all. It seems to me that if you were truly pro-Israel, you'd be advocating for policies that keep Israel's armies out of wars and keep it's people from becoming targets for suicide bombers.

      Why? It's easy. The same answer really applies to all religious people. If you follow the basic tenents of your faith, you will find that the core truth is to treat others as you would have them treat you. Which of these two would meet that demand for compassion? They guy that says "you're on your own" or the one that says "we're in this together"?

      Yes, a fair tax would be nice. Fair is paying what you can afford. The rich and large corporations do not contribute to society in the same proportion as they benefit. The poor, more often than not, contribute more to society than they can afford (if you think they don't pay taxes, then you haven't taken into account property taxes, which are part of rent, and sales taxes).
