Yippie ad from 1968

“During the 1968 election the Yippie Party demanded and got free air time under the “Equal Time” provisions. They gave some of the time to the ACLU and an Anti-War group. For the rest of the time they created this parody political ad. Features appearances by Alan Ginsburg, Jerry Rubin, Abbie Hoffman and music by Phil Ochs. Includes clips from the 1968 Democratic Convention Riot and silent films by DW Griffith, Cecil B DeMille and Rudolph Valentino.”
