Agency Creates Twitter-Powered Presidential Puppet Smackdown?

Smack a Candidate

Santa Monica-based agency Ignition are set on moving the US Presidential campaign away from a mudslinging match into a puppet smackdown with ‘Smack a Candidate‘. Smack a Candidate consists of a Barack Obama and Mitt Romney puppet controlled by the posts of Twitter users.

How does it work? When you hear something from one of the candidates that you don’t like, post a tweet with the hashtag #SMACKOBAMA or #SMACKROMNEY and the puppet will take of the rest.

Smack a Candidate bouts will take place right up to election day November 6. Each round is recorded and can be viewed on the site, or watch live as the presidential punches fly.
