Its that time of the season, when every other television ad is a vicious personal attack from your local politician topped off with the obligatory “I approve this message”.
We have picked a handful of the weirdest and worst ads of the last campaign seasons for your viewing pleasure.
1) Totally Inappropriate:
This ad incorporated images of James Foley’s executioner only a week after it happened.
2) Attacking the handicapped:
Probably not best to belittle your opponent’s handicap in Texas.
Its so crazy it just might cult classic.
4) Call Me Maybe… not a spoof:
Dolphins’ cheerleaders did it better.
5) Awkwardness, testicles, and sex offenders:
There is so much wrong with this ad its hard to know where to start.
We urge you to follow this link to see the truth behind this ad. (Not an embedable video.) Sen. Mark Begich’s ad deals with real issues crimes and uses complete lies to blackball his opponent. Watch it and read the fact check here.
7) Frozen Political Options:
Everyone has made a cover of this video, so why not a politician? Seriously, Elsa is the new Elvis.
8) Auto-tuned to hell:
Probably not the best political ad… those usually have a point. But maybe a potential record deal later?
BONUS – Electile Dysfunction:
Weird, yes. Worst? You can decide. We obviously approve of the title, here at PIE. So which ad is the worst? Have one we missed or an all time favorite political campaign? Tell us about it in the comments below!
