Is this the best campaign ad of the year in Alabama?

AL.com reports:
In a state known for its less-than-high-road political commercials, an Alabama House candidate is earning high praise for his ad urging voters to "think outside the box."

Darius Foster, Republican candidate for House District 56, released his ad earlier this month. The 1 minute video shows people of all races reading bio information about Foster, who is black.

In the ad, Foster said he decided to make the video to share the facts "while challenging stereotypes."

"In a nutshell, I am not monolithic. I am many things. I can't be put in a box," he says in the ad. -- Watch what pundits are describing as the best campaign ad from an Alabama politician this year | AL.com
