Campaign AdWatch: Now Playing At The Rudy Giuliani Terrorporn Grindhouse

Posted: Updated:

If you're like most Americans, then buried within the mists and cobwebs of your memory is the image of Rudy Giuliani. Remember him? Mayor of 9/11? Buddies with that mobbed-up dolt he pimped as the head of the Department of Homeland Security? Loves nothing more than a quiet evening of waterboarding and alienating his offspring? Yeah...that guy! Whatever happened to him? Well, he's polling in the single digits in Iowa and is a real nowhere man in New Hampshire. Last we heard, he was building his firewall in Florida - probably SeaWorld adjacent - and hoping to last long enough to compete in states like New York and New Jersey.

The net impact of this strategy? Basically, no one in all the world is talking about his candidacy anymore. So what's America's Mayor to do? Crash the conversation with an ad that will scar your very soul, that's what! And this as is so jaw-droppingly terrifying that it's become the first campaign ad I can recall to come with this YouTube warning: "This video or group may contain content that is inappropriate for some users, as flagged by YouTube's user community."

Is it, as they say, "NSFW?" Folks, it's not safe for anywhere. And that's just the way Rudy wants it! (To say nothing of John Deady!)
