Crunch time: you’re around 40 points behind in the polls, your own party is quietly edging away from you, no one knows your actual campaign strategy, and your own ads just get you into trouble for racially charged, fear-mongering imagery. What do you do?
Express yourself through song. Or at least, set a bunch of critiques of your rival from the primaries to a vaguely sinister club beat, as Joe Lhota has done with his latest ad (embedded below). Just a classic campaign ad tactic, but with a
terrifying cool little twist. The youth vote’s definitely in the bag for Lhota now, yes? [Photo]
