EXCLUSIVE LEAK: McCain's Latest Attack Ad
October 13, 2008
They may be going a bit too far with this one.

Haha.. the best McCain ad parody I've seen anywhere.. including MadTV, SNL, Daily Show, Colbert Report or Real Time with Bill Maher. Ever think about writing comedy? :)

Wait, Obama’s black?
I gotta re-think some stuff.

Is calling Obama black (black dominating his ethnic identity as opposed to "mixed" or "black and white") an example of how this country has not progressed?

haha... you used bloodhound gang lyrics ("we don't need no water..."), but they are white.

Who is Barack Obama? And what of his relationship with Raj from 'What's Happenin'?

this nailed it! and I love the "I just don't care anymore" thing at the end, it is starting to seem that way with McCain, isn't it?

Thanks again Jay, after I watched it I went back to the posts you did in January when you were hitting on the politics really hard, quote from your piece on tolerance fatigue - "every voter always says they don't like negative campaign ads but historically negative campaign ads have ALMOST always worked". With the bad week the GOP ticket just had it would be good to get your view on tolerance fatigue part 2.

Definitely killed it Jay. I have officially resigned from attacking idiotic right-wing supporters of McCain. The research I've done, and the news I've been reading as of late indicates a strong victory for Obama. Evidently, the electorate is nearly an overwhelming majority in support of Barack Obama. And that's what really matters in modern elections, the electoral vote as opposed to the popular vote. Analysts say the only thing that could shift it back to McCain would be a highly catastrophic event, and even then the connection between the Bush Admin. and McCain and all the crap that transpired along with it will make it extremely difficult for the Republican party to extend its power. On top of all of that, Barack Obama will be airing a 30-minute long presentation on national television just days before Election Day.

Hilarious, great video Jay.
With that being said, there is a part of it that's scary, and that's the fact that McCain has allowed people to begin to say these things. Once he started with the Bill Aires relation rhetoric which gave way to many people, already under the impression that he's a muslim, now believing he's a terrorist. McCain, as a party leader of the Conservatives needs to step in and say "My friends, we have to kill this shit." Because especially with Sarah Palin's incessant hate-mongering, this election is turning more from Democratic-Republican to Black-White.
And McCain does have ethics, maybe his campaign doesn't, and Palin certainly doesn't but if they end the campaign like this, with so much hostility and negativity that just ruins their parties reputation even further than Bush already did. So it's up to McCain, to get all of his Republican slaves to... shut the fuck up.

Ummm... I guess this is what they mean by "low information voter"?
My bad, I shouldn't get snippy about it :) but FYI those lyrics were around LOOONG before the Bloodhound Gang used them.

Jay Smooth, can I be your friend?
Posted by: murderator at October 13, 2008 6:17 PM
wow - seriously? the bloodhound gang?
anyway, it really does seem like McCain just doesn't care anymore...he's decided to "whip" Obama at the next debate...
we'll see how that goes over. [I know I'm biased, but, as the days go by, I just keep thinking: he's just too old]

Per Wikipedia, "The roof is on fire" originated with Rock Master Scott and the Dynamic Three (who were African American) as a single in 1984. It gained widespread popularity from the re-mix performed by the Bloodhound Gang (white).
Can we put that issue to rest and just go with the general awesomeness of this video? I love it so much I keep trying to find new people to show it to - and my standard for passing things on is pretty high.

Jay, I enjoy your intelligent comments and sharp wit. Each day it is the first site I read. I was turned on to your site by some friends. I am a 65 year old, WASP who is not waspish. I began supporting OBAMA (our man) two years ago.
I love to see the bright notes from his campaign and supporters. How can anyone who has more than a third grade education and who has read anything but Bugs Bunny cartoons be a Republican ? I have learned a new art form-reading, and thoroughly enjoying your site. Thanks, and PLEASE keep up the great work.
OBAMA FOR PRESIDENT!

McCain is on the edge of just saying this outright anyway...
Thanks for giving us a way to laugh this off.

The fact that Nelly hasn't even been brought up yet says a lot about the people who visit this site.

Spot fucking on, as always!
You're my hero . . . or something.

The Bloodhound Gang was black?!?!?!!...
Very nice, Jay. Forget writing comedy, you should write McCain's ads! I wouldn't laugh every time I hear "straight talk express" if McCain ran this ad. I'd finally believe him.
Posted by: consumatron at October 13, 2008 11:21 PM
Yes, this video is dead on and absolutely hysterical... uh... only if it weren't so "true". I don't know if I should laugh or cry.
I have relatives who are hard core, over the top right wing bible thumping conservative Mennonites. Yes... concientious objectioning peace loving PLAIN Mennonites (think "Amish Lite").
They believe those lies about Obama. All of it. Hook line and sinker. They believe it as if it were written in stone by God himself. No amount of proof or discussion could convince them otherwise. Any argument against these "truths" are just lies directly from the devil himself. When McCain speaks to them it might as well be Jesus himself returned to lead the nation to the Christian heaven. If Jesus returned tomorrow and supported McCain they would not even blink.
Saddly... they felt exactly the same way about Bush. These are MENNONITES. Not your average run of the mill Christians. They make Sarah Palin look like an alcoholic hedonistic drug addicted child murderer. They don't cut their hair, shave their legs, where makeup. 80 year old women with hair long enough to reach their ankles (of course it's kept up in a bun with a covering). And NOW... they support war and love John McCain. they don't see any hypocrisy in this whatsoever.
This video could be shown to people like that and they would AGREE WITH IT, not ever suspecting that it was intended as humor. They are that clueless. They are quite frankly... that stupid.
I could send them a link to this and they would not understand. I'm not kidding. I'm serious... no really... they wouldn't get it.
Haha! Bloodhound Gang?
I am the most unhip guy on the planet. I am so white I'm translucent. Totally out of the loop, never listened to rap and... don't really like much of it and even I knew those lyrics didn't originate from the Bloodhound gang.
Of course years and years ago when I purchased the CD (remember back when people bought CD's?) I had to ask someone I worked with who was more informed to explain the reference to me.

Jay Smooth, I see this made it to Boing Boing. Congratulations for being unstoppable.

Would you consider marrying me, jay? This cracked me up so much, I wish it were on tv.

Great video! I’m sending the video over to a friend that keeps sending me emails depicting Obama as a character with ties to suspicious individuals with distrustful dark past. I think this missed this one! ¡Ya Pues!
Posted by: Jose at October 16, 2008 9:49 PM
Ummmm Jay, I enjoyed your work so far, but I think you are way to preoccupied with the election...Well I'm not American, so I don't get some of these jokes, mostly I understand the principle and why it is supposed to be funny, but again I'm not American so I'm not in the loop so much(and personally i don't think a black president is going to change much, although I do hope he wins)...The videos that I enjoyed are about hip-hop and the hip hop artists and it seems you haven't done one in more than a month...so get back to work you lazy #$%" :P
Posted by: Ringpeace at October 21, 2008 1:24 PM
Hey Jay, What's happening ...is your little hater acting up again? There has been so much in the news ...Political wise. I keep checking back to see what your thoughts are. Like the previous poster am not American but we seem to tune in for different reasons. As much as I like/Love Hip Hop and grew up in Hip Hop...I am drawn to your political outburst. (Perhaps moving to Turkey is off the table. :-)) Anyhow as the election draws near ...Days to go. Tell that little hater to get out of your way! Cause folks like me can't be in your hood to experience what's happening ...we can only depend on unfiltered rants like yours to vicariously experience the political vibrations of the folks living it. Cheers

Showing Will Smith's image as "gangsta rap" is discussed is almost as funny as bookending Rog and Dwayne as the "black community". Brilliant as always Jay Smooth.
