How to campaign in Korea

Next Wednesday there are elections for the National Assembly, which is like Congress. It's a big deal. And this is how the country is preparing:

Step 1: Rent a truck and put a ginormous TV with equally ginormous speakers in the back of it. Play footage of your favorite candidate doing awesome things and giving inspirational speeches. If you look closely, you will notice that there is a person in the back of the truck wearing an oversize cardboard cutout of the guy's head.

P.S. As the person who lives across the street from the speakers, I request that in the future you wait until after my alarm clock goes off. Thank you.
 Step 2: Assemble supporters. Give them matching outfits. Teach them to dance. Place them at every intersection on every major road
 Step 3: Hang banners. Who needs commercials?
