By now we know that much of contemporary politics has become a self-parody. A trust fund baby and former reality TV show star is heading the race for the GOP nomination. A former fetal researcher has criticized Planned Parenthood for talking about carrying out fetal research. The same guy who was caught sending dick picks twice, effectively ending his political career, has since been hired by a Public Relations agency that handles Hilary Clinton among other high-profile clients. But Canada is not without its own unintentionally self-devouring campaigns. Earlier this month Prime Minister Harper posted a cringeworthy video taking a hard stance against a Netflix tax that literally no one is proposing.
This is why it is so refreshing that Canadian independent candidate Wyatt Scott has chosen parody rather than waiting until parody chose him. The video features Scott riding a giant Canadian Goose through the skyline before plunging a sword through a dragon’s skull and fist-bumping an Alien. It’s probably the most honest campaign video that’s ever been released.
