Funniest. Political ad. Ever.

If you haven’t already seen it, here it is. The Demon Sheep YouTube ad put out by Republican Senate candidate Carly Fiorina, attacking her “FCINO” (Fiscal Conservative In Name Only) rival Thomas Campbell in a California primary race.

I’m not sure if their goal was for it to be this absolutely, stunningly, unintentionally hilariously over-the-top. (It plays exactly like a parody that you would see on The Daily Show or The Colbert Report.) But let’s put it this way: Lots of people are talking about it.

The crazy-awesomeness is embedded for your viewing pleasure:

That HAS to be intentional. It just has to. NO ONE in their right mind would intend this to be serious (other than the attacks on the guy’s record)…..right?

ROFL, either way.

ahahaha….The music in the background is awesome. It makes it sound so epic. One of the funniest parts has to be when the sheep falls off the pedestal. And the guy dressed up as the demon sheep…I wonder what was going through his mind when they were filming his scenes.

Apparently, the over-the-top-ness of this ad is calculated and intentional, with the argument being that the more loony and bizarre, the more viral the video would be. Not sure if that makes it more effective to the target audience, but hey, at least it’s more fun for us. See this story:

I certainly could not follow a single shred of argument that was put forward. I was caught up in the graphics, the music, the Morgan Freemanesqe narration, and those–those horrible, dastardly red eyes…they followed me everywhere. If I doubted the Cheeze Intentionality, that doubt evaporated when they showed Demon Sheep’s tennis shoes.

“We’re the RIGHT CHOICE because we pay actors to crawl around fields DRESSED LIKE DEMON SHEEP!”
