When it isn't a Presidential election year, we don't always get a chance to see the campaign political ads run in states other than our own so The Hill has come up with The 8 Strangest Ads of 2014 for our amusement. Scroll down after the introductory video.

Hill.com is the strangest, playing 2-3 videos at a time on top of each other, and no way to disable the ones that you are not trying to watch.

I found most of these ads to be pretty good. Granted I could not sit through all of them because hill.com kept playing a local political ad on top of a youtube video.

No reflection on you of course, Laura...thanks for link. But jeez, was this done by the same people who did healthcare.gov?

That didn't happen to me. I had to manually click on the videos to play them.

There's a vid at the top that's causing all the over talk. Turn it off and all the others are ok and aren't automatic start.

I hope humor becomes a trend in political ads. Some of that bunch were pretty funny while getting their point across and others were too cute for their own good. Either way, they were all better than a dose of steady negativity.
