“Fracking Selects American Manufacturing as Vice Presidential Running Mate,” so reads the latest headline from a very clever social media campaign by FrackFeed and North Texans for Natural Gas.
The campaign, launched last month, has anthropomorphized the fracking industry and thrown her hat in the ring for the presidency of the United States.
This humorous tongue-in-cheek campaign is an excellent platform for touting Fracking’s many attributes, such as these bullet points on job creation, lifted from Fracking’s press release announcing the selection of American Manufacturing as her running mate:
- Expanded access to shale gas and pipelines created 1.9 million manufacturing jobs in 2015 alone.
- The construction of new natural gas transmission lines meant more than 347,000 jobs in 2015, with almost 60,000 of those in manufacturing.
- The American Chemistry Council estimates that, by 2023, more than 738,000 jobs will be created from higher chemical industry output thanks to shale gas.
- The steel industry projects that growth in demand and production stemming from shale gas development will lead to around 1 million jobs nationwide by 2025.
In addition to being clever, the campaign is exceptionally well done. Check out this 60-second “campaign ad” for Fracking and see for yourself if you wouldn’t consider a write-in vote for Fracking for President.
