Today, my friend Nick Guariglia sent me a YouTube link that has gone viral. Was it a video (warning: foul language) of a guy dressed up as a girl singing about his obsession with shoes? A polka remix of “Bad Romance?” Or a video of my girlfriend in a commercial with her sending out cell phone pictures of herself in a bathtub?
No, it’s Carly Fiorina’s “Demon Sheep Ad” and it’s the Star Wars Holiday Special of political ads. As Nick said to me, “The only way that ad could have been good would have been if its intention was to mock bad ads.”
Watch the ad below:
I really don’t even know where to begin with this one. It’s so long that I found myself trying to skip ahead faster than YouTube could load. It was so dramatic that you would have thought it was a low-budget independent horror movie. Fiorina’s acronym, Fiscal Conservative In Name Only (FCINO) can’t even be pronounced. And it has a dude in a sheep suit with Terminator eyes!
Fiorina previously made a fool of herself by launching a website promoting her candidacy that had an intro that finished with “Carlyfornia Dreamin’.” The site is now disabled but someone has posted the intro here.
