I've gotta hand it to Rick Santorum. You can't say the guy isn't trying. Dude's been pulling out all the stops in the GOP campaign. He's determined to be the super-duper conservative (often nonsensical) answer to Obama, Mitt Romney, and everybody in between.
And it's kind of working. I mean, he's doing way better in the polls than anyone thought he would. People are actually taking this man seriously. Well, they were. They totally won't be after seeing his hilarious new "Obamaville" ad spot in which he tries to scare the bejeezus out of all of us. No, really. The ad has haunted house-esque music, ravens flying about, creepy painting of old ladies, and of course, the face of Ahmadinejad ... which becomes the face of Barack Obama. Muah-ah-ah-ah-ah!
Are you scared? Are you shakin' in your boots? Are you wondering if Ahmadinejad really is Obama? Are you wondering if the man who held the gas nozzle to his head actually pulled the trigger? Oh, how does it all end?! Talk about a cliffhanger! Damn you, Rick and your Hollywood trickery!
Look, we all know that all political ads are downright absurd, but so far this year, I'm gonna have to say, this one takes the cake. It's ridiculous. It's like Santorum is parodying himself. Except that he's not. He's just being himself. And, honestly, that's the scariest thing of all. With or without an eerie soundtrack and a raven.
What do you think of the Obamaville ad?
