Never seen such a candidate….

In case you haven’t seen these….

  • Justin Giancola

    first one was funnier. :)

  • Len

    The first one is notable for the mysterious use of tilt-shift photography… Maybe they wanted us to just focus on his eyes and nose?

  • Justin Giancola

    😮 you know I just saw an ad for Obama 2012 on your site! ;p

  • ackbark

    The cigarette is to say

    ‘I don’t care what anyone thinks, I don’t care what anyone says, anyone at all, about anything, fuck you.’

    And that, to the target segment, is the ideal reason to vote for Cain.

    It’s like poetry.

  • Micah Burke

    Acbark – isn’t that exactly what the Occupy folks are promoting? 😉

  • ackbark

    In what way would you get that impression from the Occupy movement? They seem to care about quite a lot of things, however diffuse and unorganized.

  • Mustapha Mond

    “And that, to the target segment, is the ideal reason to vote for Cain.
    It’s like poetry.”

    Hell, to folks like me it is poetry!

  • S.J. Esposito

    Maybe it’s just me, but I have seen the (Cain) clip numerous times now, and yet, I still don’t understand why the cigarette smoking was included at all. I just don’t understand what purpose it serves..

    Also, the part at the very end where Cain cracks a weird smirk makes it seem like we’re supposed to elect him to head up the Legion of Doom. The whole thing is just… Strange.
