Campaign AdWatch: Mike Gravel Will Have His Revenge On The Beatles Songbook

Mike Gravel may not have ended up contributing too much to the Democratic primaries, but if there was one achievement where Gravel led all comers by a million miles, it was the production of amazingly insane campaign videos. Delightful in direct proportion to the extent to which they were ill-advised, no one quite hit the vein of surreal, madcap agitprop quite like Gravel. Well, now that he's officially dumped the Dems for the Libertarians, the guy is free to continue his tradition of making the most retina-searing YouTubes in history. In this clip, the world is heading to Hell in a millenial handbasket, and then Gravel appears on the scene, busting out the Beatles tune "Helter Skelter" in the style of a cranked William Shatner. Do you, don't you, want him to love you?
