This was a commercial in 1964 to advertise for President Johnson during his campaign. “Daisy Girl” or “Peace, Little Girl,” was a controversial campaign advertisement. It was aired only once on September 7, 1964. It remains one of the most controversial political advertisements ever made.

I personally thought it was a sweet, and powerful commercial. The attack ad was designed to capitalize on comments made by presidential candidate Barry Goldwater about the possibility of using nuclear weapons in Vietnam.
