Herman Cain Unleashes Most Bizarre Political Ad Yet

Monday, March 26, 2012

UPDATE: The original video has been removed from YouTube as a violation of the website's policy against "spam, scams, and commercially deceptive content." The embedded video on also appears to be broken, which leads us to believe that one of two things is going on here: Cain either retracted the ad, or had nothing to do with it in the first place.

However, the ad remains featured on Cain's other website, Cain Connections, and he spoke about it this morning in a radio interview on the Neal Boortz Show. It seems Cain has acknowledged the ad is his and promoted it as such, but it's a mystery why the original is no longer on YouTube.

You think you know, but you have no idea.

Yes, Herman Cain has already proven time and time again that he's kind of a weird guy. Pick your poison: the rendition of John Lennon's "Imagine" where he replaced several words with "pizza"; the Mark Block smoking ad, featuring the patented Cain slo-mo smile; that time he answered a question about Libya with "9-9-9"; this...thing.

And yet, Cain may have outdone himself with a new ad released today, entitled "Rabbit." It's an allegory for what the current tax code does to small business, and a call to arms for Cain's latest project,

I promise, you won't be able to guess what's about to happen to that little bunny.
