Florida State Rep Sets New Bar For So-Bad-It’s-Good Campaign Ads (VIDEO)

Views

Forget demon sheep. Forget fatty Uncle Sam. Forget blimp Barbara Boxer and monster Nancy Pelosi and “gather your armies.” In fact, forget everything you thought you knew about viral campaign ads. The paradigm has officially shifted. Meet Florida State Rep. Mike Weinstein (R).The ad in question features a lethal combination of elements: terrible dancing, dubious production value, endearingly earnest participants and a relentless and catchy hook. “Mike, Mike, Mike… Weinstein.” One listen and you’ll never forget the name again.

Bonus: According to The Daily Caller, the spot was created by and stars none other than Weinstein’s son.

Double bonus: killer keyboard solo.
