Have you noticed that it is nearly impossible to turn on the TV or visit a website without some sort of political programming being forced down your throat? The negativity of mudslinging campaigns and friends with different viewpoints makes it hard to keep positive. Considering this happens every 4 years you’d think we’d be used to it by now… but wouldn’t it be great to have a touch of positivity?!
This year Captain Obvious is bringing that positivity with him as he ‘runs’ for the presidency. He’s verified on Twitter, with more than 300k followers and Captain Obvious urges you to follow him! When you follow @CaptainObvious you get a front row seat to his comments on the pageantry of the race, remarks on big presidential moments as they happen, and live-tweets during the upcoming debates.
He also has a microsite set up where you’ll find some fun goodies. There are video recaps of his ‘visit’ to all 50 states, animated pictures, and of course Captain Obvious merchandise.
With all that running you know he’s tired by the end of the day, so Hotels.com is helping him rest his feet at night. Why is Hotels.com backing Captain Obvious? Well, because they believe in simplicity as much as he does – and he’ll need a place to sleep at night, duh!. They’ll be providing him with running shoes, socks, shorts and everything else he needs for his run.
Since the presidential race begun it wasn’t clear who the #ObviousPresident was, but now that Captain Obvious is in the running I think we all know. He is definitely a ‘candidate’ worth following throughout the presidential race. Regardless of what side of the fence you are voting, you should check out CaptainOvious on Twitter since his satirical insight is sure to make the campaign train an entertaining one!
