Can we laugh at this ridiculous commercial without turning the thread political?

    Don't know who the hell this candidate for Minneapolis mayor is, but based on this commercial he shouldn't get anything more than a couple votes.

    Among the highlights, he vows to not go to strip clubs anymore and he has to be bleeped out when he tells voters to "WAKE THE BLEEP UP!!"

    1. The girl is smokin' hot.

    2. He's mad as hell and isn't going to take it anymore.

    3. While he was quite clear that he isn't going to go to strip clubs any more, I definitely infer he probably won't go to strip clubs any less, either.

    Funny you should ask. Tomorrow is the fourth anniversary of a DWI for him.

    Did he just purify himself in the waters of Lake Minnetonka?

    Sounds like he is from the The Rent Is Too Damn High Party.

    One of my favorite Minnesota political spots. Yes, it's real, and yes, the action figures were manufactured and sold:

    Still the best campaign video of all time

    Even though it turned out to be a fake, viral video campaign for a comedian.

    So, in 2008, all he did was eat corn dogs and drink? The ad is unclear as to how long the corn dogging lasted.
