(CNN) – The battle over energy policy between Sens. John McCain and Barack Obama has ventured into the realm of online video.
A new 40-second web ad launched by the McCain camp Wednesday portrays Obama as “Dr. No,” a label McCain’s campaign debuted Tuesday to represent Obama’s opposition to many of the Arizona senator’s energy policies.
In an homage to the cinematic style associated with the opening of James Bond films, the ad uses background music reminiscent of Bond films and portrays Obama in several settings that all have graphics of the word “No” in the background. The spot also features audio of Obama discussing his positions on a number of energy policy issues.

Script For "Dr. No"
CHYRON: Barack Obama Is Dr. No.
No To Drilling Offshore Oil.
BARACK OBAMA: Offshore drilling would not lower gas prices today.
CHYRON: No To A Gas Tax Holiday.
BARACK OBAMA: I think John McCain's proposal for a three month tax holiday is a bad idea.
CHYRON: No To Innovation. No To The Electric Car.
BARACK OBAMA: In this campaign, John McCain is offering the same old gimmicks.
CHYRON: No To Clean, Safe, Nuclear Energy.
BARACK OBAMA: I start off with the premise that nuclear energy is not optimal. I am not a nuclear energy proponent.
CHYRON: Barack Obama Truly Is The Dr. No Of Energy Security.
Paid for by John McCain 2008.
All you Dems are making yourself's look like blithering idiots. You all have such wonderful ideas(not) but none of you are worth a crap. This is not about a candidate winning, this is about the future of America. If you had such good ideas, America wouldn't be faced with the issues we have today. This didn't happen until the democraps took over. But they seem to want to point the finger. Isn't that typical of a loser?
Senator McCain has flip-flopped on this issue so often that I just have no Idea what he believes anymore.
Now we can see why Obama has way more support then Mccain. McCain is so unelectable.
No to McCain and his 3rd Bush term!!!! GO BO!!!
First of all, shame on McCain for suggesting that Obama does not support Innovation and/or electric transportation. The TRUTH is John McCain is saying NO to innovation, by lifting the ban on offshore drilling and continuing our addiction to fossil fuel, No to innovation by using gimmicks like $300 mil prizes and gas tax holidays that wont work, No to innovation by promoting nucleur energy as safe to the public when there is no safe way to dispose of nucleur waste.
John McCain is a LIAR!!!
Thank God for the internet because the truth is out there all you have to do is Google it.
The ad seems to be right on message.
What has Obama proposed? Live in the dark and ride a bicycle? Sorry folks but I'm not willing to bet my future on windmills and solar panels.
" Doctor NO" ad APPROVED BY AND PAID FOR by the "YES MAN .... BUSH'S YES MAN!!!"
This ad should have been paid for by Obama ... but no it wasn't!
Um ... Obama is right on everything there except possibly nuclear energy, which I'm open to expanding. If anything, this ad boosts Obama for me.
All you NObama suporters are going to regret the day you ever voted for him if he actually pulls off a win, which is highly unlikely. McCain for America, 08.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but when has Obama ever said no to the electric car? He was saying no to the idea of giving $300 million (of taxpayers money) to an idea that's already been invented.
Say, "NO," to McCain!
We need electric cars.
He doesn't have to win you over....Buy!!! *I know you are a republican troll*
MCCAIN WASTED HIS MONEY ON THIS AD AND IT IS TOTALLY STUPID. OBAMA WILL CHEW THIS ONE UP AND SPIT IT OUT.
LOL... how does it make McCain look bad? It uses Obama's exact words and what he stands for. You Obamites are something else, stay blind and pay the price, others of us are keeping our eyes and ears open.
i haven't seen many republican ads saying why voters should vote mccain. only ads why voters should not vote obama.
you don't win votes that way. it is called negative ad pandering, and it won't win this year.
Jesus Christ could appear in a campaign ad for John McCain and I still wouldn't vote for him...
It's said to see the once brilliant (albeit evil) Rovian strategy of playing down the opponent's strengths reduced to this triviality. McCain is done.
One word to describe McCain and his camp, "LAME."
The McCain camps has started its slow self-destruction. It will be painful to see them go down throughout the fall....
Oh geez. I hope no one decides their vote based off of ads like this. Can we please move forward and discuss the issues instead of piecing together sound bites?
