Though officially aired only once, on September&#160;7, 1964, it is considered a turning point in political and advertising history. It was designed to broadcast Johnson's <a href="/wiki/Anti-nuclear_movement" title="Anti-nuclear movement">anti-nuclear</a> positions, contrary to Goldwater's stance. The commercial begins with <a href="/wiki/Monique_Luiz" title="Monique Luiz">Monique Corzilius</a>, a three-year-old girl, picking the petals of a <a href="/wiki/Bellis_perennis" title="Bellis perennis">daisy</a> while counting from one to ten incorrectly. After she reaches "nine", a booming male voice is heard counting the numbers backward from "ten", similar to the start of a missile-launch countdown. The scene is replaced by a <a href="/wiki/Nuclear_explosion" title="Nuclear explosion">nuclear explosion</a>, with Johnson's voice-over stating: "We must either love each other, or we must die." Although the Johnson campaign was criticized for <a href="/wiki/Fear_appeal" title="Fear appeal">frightening voters</a> by implying that Goldwater would wage a <a href="/wiki/Nuclear_warfare" title="Nuclear warfare">nuclear war</a>, various other campaigns since have adopted and used the "Daisy" advertisement. </p> <p style="text-align:center;"><small>Advertisement credit: <a href="/wiki/Lyndon_B._Johnson_1964_presidential_campaign" title="Lyndon B.
