The Ox vs Roy the Rat

Text settings

Granted, it's not quite as memorable as the unsurpassable Demon Sheep, but this ad for John Oxendine, who's running to be the GOP gubernatorial candidate in Georgia, has a certain zany-yet-quaint charm to it. Gotta love the gratuitous, thrown-in-for-fun Frog-bashing too. And the line that the Ox is "strong enough to oppose the special interest, graceful enough to care for the people." Take that Disney! Go on, watch it, you won't regret doing so. More like this, please.
