Background: This ad has an aspirational message in contrast to the more issue-based ads produced by Armando Gutierrez for the DNC.  Izquierdo said the ad goes to the issue of likeability; Bush was having some success portraying himself as a man of the people and the campaign needed to address that.  EMM hired a casting agency in Los Angeles and told them to find likely Gore voters.  The people who appeared in the ad were chosen from 300-350 video clips.
