T. Boone’s Subliminal Bag(h)dad Message

I had one of those “did you just see that?” moments watching the DC talk shows on Sunday morning.

The latest version of T. Boone Pickens’ natural-gas advocacy ads includes this quick cut of a passenger car speeding away from a building with an obvious BAGDAD marquee.

Is T. Boone sending a subliminal message to get out of Iraq—or, more likely, to turn our backs on foreign oil? Or is it a director’s inside joke?

I haven’t found the video online yet. But I’ll post it as soon as I do. Any guesses to what that building might be?
