Fla. State Rep. Produces Comical, Very, Very Bad Dancing Ad (Video)
July 9, 2010
(ChattahBox)– OK folks, here is yet another over-the-top campaign ad for your Friday viewing pleasure. This one comes courtesy of Florida State Rep. Mike Weinstein (R), who is running for reelection in District 19. His son, Scott Leigh, an aspiring entertainer of sorts, produced the ad, perhaps as a tribute to really bad MTV videos from the 80s or early 90s? Hard to say really. But the combination of bad dancing, bad singing and a goofy repetitive song, makes the ad irresistible.
Perhaps the funniest part of posting about this dorky ad, is the interview Weinstein gave to the Daily Caller praising his son’s artistic talent, while making sure to ad that young Scott was a major jock wrestler in High School:
“He was always a great dancer,” Weinstein said of his son. “He wrestled in school but got back into entertainment as an adult…all you have to do is give him a topic and he will write a song!”
As for Scott, he is proud at how the ad turned out. “I used to sing and dance all over the country,” he said. “I am a very artsy person and I was able to do a lot with this video.” Yes, Scott, indeed you were.
And why did Scott choose the baggy khaki shorts, goofy visors and shirts emblazoned with the name Mike Weinstein? To appeal to the youth vote, he says. That’s why “we went with rock.” Uh, huh. Yep that crazy Rock and Roll ditty, “Mike, Mike, Mike Weinstein” is the ticket.
