These wonderfully organic......read more

Just get there! This Tuesday, vote NO on Prop. 23. A SHFT PSA directed by Jonathan Glatzer.

Our final PSA in the No on Prop. 23 campaign, Doesn't Matter How You Get There, is a poppy light hearted reminder in the old get-out-the-vote spirit. Jonathan Glatzer — who also directed our Men In Yellow spot for this campaign — played with environmentally conscious modes of transportation for Californian's on their way to the polls.
