Herman Cain Smoking Ad: Jon Huntsman's Daughters Appear In Parody

Posted: Updated:

Republican presidential candidate Jon Huntsman's daughters spoofed Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain's web ad showing his campaign manager smoking in a web video released Friday.

In the original Cain ad, his campaign manager, Mark Block, says: "We've run a campaign like nobody's ever seen. But then America's never seen a candidate like Herman Cain."

The daughters of the former Utah governor appear in their spoof against a brick wall wearing fake mustaches that resemble Block's. "We are shamelessly promoting our dad like no other candidate's family ever has. But then again, no one's ever seen like a trio like the Jon 2012 girls," says one of his daughters.

The Huffington Post's Amanda Terkel reported on their Twitter handle, @Jon2012Girls. "When is someone going to make a song about 9-9-9? We will start working on one. Get ready," read one tweet during a Republican debate, referencing Herman Cain's tax plan.

Block was banned from running Wisconsin political campaigns for three years, has faced accusations of voter suppression and has acknowledged that he was arrested twice for drunken driving.
