You Can Do It? (Yes We Can?)

I have always thought that Obama’s slogan, “Yes We Can” was a ripoff of Bob the Builder. Now his new acquisition, the Crisis Motors corporation, is using what looks to me like a variation on the other half of Bob the Builder’s cheer and features a gaudy colour scheme like those comic book style campaign ads of Obama’s. It is running in Australia, so it might be just the Chrysler marketing trying to capitalize on what they thought was a “cool” and inspiring movement. Or it could be a coincidence. Or it could be that Obama is softening up Australia via subliminal advertising for an imperial expansion. Or it could be that everyone remotely connected with Obama has been watching the same teleprompter and they are all showing Bob the Builder.

It’s just a shame that if he was going to take a slogan from someone in the construction industry he couldn’t have taken Mike Homes’:
