On the Yes side, here's a Spanish-language ad featuring a Mexican soap star who's not afraid to disrobe for the camera (not in the super traditional, straight-laced ad, silly, but elsewhere).

Alan Chambers said "young people like me". Are they the ones who are bald over 40's.
About Patricia Warren's blog. No they should not use children in ads. It might be OK with stock photos, annonymous faces, but not real people with real convictions leaning towards the opposite message of the ad. It is totally wrong.

Alex, thanks for posting all these ads, so people can see what's going on.

Some of the best "ads" against Prop 8 have come from YouTubers.

Thanks for submitting these ads. It's nice to see what people for and against the prop are saying to entice their audience. Quick question: are there any recent polls regarding Prop 8? I have only seen a few but they are a few weeks old and somewhat different. No on 8!
