It also features Norm Coleman putting trash into a dumpster. Didn't he injure himself doing this once?
UPDATE: The Big E observes -
Sen. Norm Coleman (R-MN) released a campaign video without a press conference or press release. Just an email to his supporters. The really bizarre part of this is that his wife, Laurie, looks like she was filmed in California then edited into the ad. What does this say about their marriage? Will Norm answer questions about the state of his marriage when it appears that Laurie won't come to MN to film an ad?
I agree that the lighting does look odd, and it doesn't look like she was filmed in the kitchen the ad was filmed in.
