Bill Hillsman May Or May Not Have Run Out of Ideas

Bill Hillsman of North Woods is one of the best political ad makers out there. Or at least, he was. For the hotly contested Ned Lamont campaign, Bill parodied his own work with a spoke called "Where's Joe?" (A lukewarm send up of his legendary "Where's Rudy?" spot for Paul Wellstone.) Then he created an action figure of Kinky Friedman to use in a commercial. Just like he did for Jessie Ventura.

In North Woods' defense, they also delivered two really good spots with a dog barking at a Joe Lieberman sign and people dropping coins into a wishing well.

Shape up Bill, we're watching.
