(CNN) - Former Sen. Mike Gravel's 30-second spot during the debate was, um, different . . . to put it mildly.
In black and white video footage, Gravel looked directly into the camera and said a series of sound bites that are separated by the ringing of a bell and the dissolving of Gravel's image.
The long-shot Democratic contender's spot covered the Iraq war, the global war on terror, universal health care, and Social Security.
It ended with an image of the ripples caused by a drop of water in a crystal blue pool of liquid with the web address for Gravel's campaign superimposed on top of the spot's final image.
Gravel's recent Internet videos garnered a lot of media attention for their randomness. Did you think these were similarly random in keeping with the image Gravel has cultivated for himself?
