Why do U.S. presidential elections take so long? Endless lists of debates, polls, primaries… and that is just the beginning!
Youturris, a hilarious cartoon web series, aims to clarify (and spice up) this process as the 2016 presidential campaign cycle enters a decisive stage. Through funny animated videos, the web series shows the U.S. political scenario “for dummies.”
In the first episode, an undecided Latino voter explains who are the main candidates still in the running for the 2016 Democratic and Republican nominations.
Despite the rapid growth of the Latino electorate, its voter turnout remains lower than that of other ethnic groups in the United States. It is estimated that fewer than half of the record 27 million Latinos eligible to vote will make it to the polls on November 8, 2016.
With lots of potential to impact elections, Latinos will be at the center of the original web series Youturris. The animated videos will explain the day-to-day developments of the presidential campaigns with a satirical and humorous twist.
The initiative is developed by an international team of independent creatives who want to provide a new vision, funny and nonpartisan, of the American politics. Niko, author of the successful web series titled “Cálico Electrónico,” is part of the creative team.
The first episode, in Spanish with English subtitles, is already available at the Youturris Youtube channel [https://goo.gl/g8srTF]. Join the conversation using the hashtag #Youturris across platforms and by following @Youturris on:
