It’s no secret that many campaign ads feature stock footage to fill in the gaps. But when creating an ad focusing on the U.S. presidency, it’s probably best to make sure those images are from America.
That isn’t the case with a new ad from Jeb Bush’s super PAC, Right to Rise, which features stock images from England and Asia.
Politico first noticed the issue with the “Bright” video, which features a few not very bright moves.
For example, there’s this image of the sun rising over a field:
The problem? It’s in Cornwall, England, and is available on Shutterstock.
What about these kids heading off to school?
That one is available on iStock and was shot by a firm from the United Kingdom.
But the real gem comes courtesy of this clip, which announces “America is great.”
It costs $35 on the Pond5 website and has the following description: “Workers on top of scaffolding construct a multiple story building in Southeast Asia.”
Donald Trump, who wants to “Make America Great Again,” definitely wouldn’t approve.
