Coincidence? We Think Not.

Here’s what the hardworking staff at Campaign Outsider is wondering:

What are the odds that both Obamas would be featured in unauthorized advertisements on the same day?

Exhibit A: Michelle Obama in this “Fur-Free and Fabulous!” ad from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (via the Boston Globe).

The White House said People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is using Michelle Obama’s image without her permission in a new ad campaign. It also features Carrie Underwood (from left), Oprah Winfrey, and Tyra Banks.

Exhibit B: Barack Obama on this WEATHERPROOF billboard in Times Square (via the New York Times).

Who was it again that warned about the threat posed by the advertising-industrial complex?

Oh, right. Us.
