Carly Fiorina’s Senate campaign, which made sure reporters checked out the truly strange “Boxer Blimp” web video over the weekend, fires off a press release declaring mission accomplished.

Here, from the press release, is the list of accolades.

Movie “Takes Boxer To Task For Her Record In The Senate.” “This latest offering, which is already being dubbed the “Boxer Blimp,” takes Boxer to task for her record in the Senate. California Republicans say that is something that has been little examined in the course of previous campaigns, but which is essential to highlight in a year where the three-term Senator’s approval ratings are lagging while California’s economy remains on proverbial life support.” (“Carly Fiorina Slams Boxer in New, Outrageous Video,” BigGovernment, 3/13/10)

Ad Features Compare-And-Contrast With “trademark humor.” “The ad for GOP Senate hopeful Carly Fiorina features plenty of creator Fred Davis’ trademark humor.” (Mark Barabak, “Demon Sheep creator strikes again,” Los Angeles Times, 11/13/10)

Hot Air “Another Memorable Spot.” “The quirky political ad man who produced those two cult classics has introduced another memorable spot…The whole spot is bizarre to the point of hilarity – which, it should be noted, is by design.” (Sam Stein, “Demon Sheep Ad Man Strikes Again, Morphs Boxer Into A Blimp,” The Huffington Post, 11/13/10)

Fiorina Portrayed As “The Only Republican To Emerge In 18 Years Who Can Deflate The Blimp.”“Titled ‘Hot Air,’ the movie depicts Democrat Boxer as a blimp that floats from Washington, D.C. to California advocating a larger role for the federal government and a variety of tax increases. The movie portrays Fiorina as the only Republican to emerge in 18 years who can deflate the blimp.” (Michael McGuire, “Carly Fiorina debuts ‘Hot Air’ movie at GOP convention,” Examiner, 3/13/10)

Fiorina Unveils “New, Mad Genius Video.” “Taking full advantage of her scheduled time on the convention program, Team Carly essentially relaunched her campaign, with a production that included music by Van Halen, a free-swinging speech delivered by the candidate channeling Miss Scarlet, and a new, mad genius video by gonzo media consultant Fred Davis.” (“GOP Extra II: New Boffo Hit By Demon Sheep Auteur,” Calbuzz, 3/13/10)

Hot Air The “Highlight” Of Fiorina’s Speech. “All the fiery rhetoric aside, and notwithstanding the full ear blast of Van Halen’s ‘Jump’ which closed the Hurricane’s star turn, the highlight of her coming out act was ‘Hot Air: The Movie.’” (“GOP Extra II: New Boffo Hit By Demon Sheep Auteur,” Calbuzz, 3/13/10)

Boxer Depicted “As Enamored With Her Own Image And Out Of Touch With Californians.” “[Fiorina] introduced herself to the state’s GOP convention Saturday with a campaign movie called Hot Air, which depicts the three-term Boxer as enamored with her own image and out of touch with Californians.” (Kevin Freking, “Fiorina assails Washington, Boxer as out of touch,” Associated Press, 3/13/10)

Movie “Boost[s] Fiorina’s Image As A Business Leader.” “The short movie also attempts to boost Fiorina’s image as a business leader who led Hewlett-Packard through difficult economic times.” (Kevin Freking, “Fiorina assails Washington, Boxer as out of touch,” Associated Press, 3/13/10)

“Fiorina’s Fantastical Short Reflected A Willingness To Display Some Eccentricity In A Tough Primary Battle Against Campbell And Assemblyman Chuck DeVore.” (Michael Rothfeld, “State Republican delegates see a new ‘bizarre’ video, and hear another ex-CEO,” Los Angeles Times, 3/13/10)

Video Shows Fiorina Thinks Outside The Box. “The point of a web video is to make people talk about the ad. While you can criticize the weirdness of the ad, Fiorina’s team gets points for thinking outside the box and sticking the their guns after to much criticism of their previous video.” (Aaron Blake, “From Demon Sheep to Hindenboxer,” The Hill, 3/13/10)

Video “Created The Steamiest Buzz” Of CRP. “The anti-Boxer ad created the steamiest buzz at the three-day convention.” (Ken McLaughlin, “After Success Of ‘Demon Sheep’ Ad, Fiorina’s New Ad Slams Barbara Boxer,” San Jose Mercury News, 3/13/10)

San Jose Mercury News: The Movie “Immediately Went Viral…” “The nearly eight-minute demon blimp ad, which immediately went viral on YouTube, was unveiled Saturday at the California Republican Party’s convention in Santa Clara. It’s the latest Internet commercial from the campaign of U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina, whose first ad portrayed Tom Campbell as a evil-eyed sheep, ‘fiscal conservative in name only.’” (Ken McLaughlin, “After Success Of ‘Demon Sheep’ Ad, Fiorina’s New Ad Slams Barbara Boxer,” San Jose Mercury News, 3/13/10)

Movie A “Clear Show-Stopper.” “It wasn’t exactly “Demon Sheep II’ but the release of a new Carly Fiorina spot depicting Democratic U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer as a dirigible full of hot air was the clear show-stopper of the state GOP convention this weekend in Santa Clara.” (Carla Marinucci, “Anti-Barbara ‘Hindenboxer’ ad joins ‘Demon Sheep’ in Fiorina’s U.S. Senate arsenal,” San Francisco Chronicle, 3/13/10)

Ad Creates “Buzz” At CRP. “Carly Fiorina released the eight minute glitzy ad during a lunchtime speech in Santa Clara that got her that intangible and yet always sought after thing called ‘buzz.’” (Lori Prueitt, “Carly Gets Convention’s ‘Buzz’ Moment,” NBC Bay Area, 3/15/10)
