The little girl seen sleeping in Hillary Clinton‘s 3 a.m. ad, supports Barack Obama! Why would a little girl care about this, you ask? Well, apparently, the video was taken from stock video and photos, and the girl, Casey Knowles, is now almost 18 years old. Her brother thought she looked familiar when seeing the ad on The Daily Show…she wasn’t even made aware of it until then!
From ABC News:
Casey Knowles of Bonney Lake, Wash., was recently watching Jon Stewart lampoon Hillary Clinton’s well-known “3 a.m.” ads on “The Daily Show” when her brother noticed something.
“They were parodying this ad, kind of poking fun at it. They were replaying it. We paused it. My brother was like, ‘Is that Casey?’ And we just erupted,” Knowles said on “Good Morning America Weekend Edition” today. “Sure enough, it’s me.”
An image of an eight-year-old Knowles appears in the ad, shown sleeping soundly in bed. The Clinton campaign legally purchased the file footage of Knowles from Getty Images.
Ironically, though, the now-17-year-old Knowles would want Clinton rival Barack Obama to answer any important 3 a.m. calls coming into the White House.
Knowles’ image originally was shot for a railroad company advertisement, but the teen said she harbors no resentment toward the Clinton campaign for using her image.
“I’m just enjoying the irony. I’m an Obama supporter,” said the high school senior, who will turn 18 next month, well before the election in November.
Still, Knowles made it clear she disliked Clinton’s ad.
