Robert Mann talked about his book Daisy Petals and Mushroom Clouds: LBJ, Barry Goldwater, and the Ad that Changed American Politics. The 1964 ad for the presidential election campaign of Lyndon Johnson featuring a little girl plucking a daisy followed by images of nuclear destruction that became known as “The Daisy Girl Ad” was shown. It is often cited as one of the most important campaign commercials ever created. Other ads were shown in the background as Robert Mann talked about the 1964 election and the role of advertisement.
