Jewish Community Center of San Francisco says…

With Nate Houghteling, Zach Blume, and Kai Hasson A video production company formed by three East Bay twentysomethings, pals since kindergarten, Portal A is rocking the political ad world with witty, irreverent online videos that stand out from the pack. The trio crafted San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee’s “2 Legit 2 Quit” re-election video, featuring the rapper Hammer and bearded Giants closer Brian Wilson, which Time magazine called “quite possibly the most amazing campaign video ever.” In another Portal A video for Proposition 29, the California ballot measure that would have taxed cigarettes, a farmer standing in his lettuce field, proclaims, “I support big tobacco, because they killed my wife … and that’s one less mouth to feed.” Get the scoop on the latest videos gone viral from the creative minds behind Portal A.
