- A political ad from Minneapolis mayoral candidate Jeff Wagner seems more like a joke than a serious campaign move.
- The video features Wagner walking out of a lake in his underwear, holding what looks like a can of beer; the candidate then proceeds to tell viewers to "wake the f*** up" before promising not to take money from special interests and to stop going to strip clubs.
- Whether it's an attempt to appeal to younger voters or a play on municipal political scandals like those surrounding former New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner, the ad certainly succeeds in grabbing attention.
From the article:
"Man, who woulda thunk Midwestern municipal politics could make Anthony Weiner's campaign antics look boring? But Minneapolis mayoral candidate Jeff Wagner has pulled it off, emerging from a lake dressed only in his undershorts with what appears to be a can of beer before demanding that his city 'wake the f*ck up!'"
