A fake run for president is nothing without fake attack ads, and "Definitely Not Coordinating With Stephen Colbert Super PAC" is wasting no time in getting its hysterical message out to South Carolinians.

In a press release announcing the ad, Jon Stewart spoke about his new role as head of the Super PAC:

Hi again, it’s me, Jon. When I took over this Super PAC, I had no idea there’d be so much email-writing. Also, there are a lot of plants around Super PAC office with extremely specific watering schedules. Seriously, does a Northwood Spotted Fern really need to be watered "thrice fortnightly at dusk"?

Anyway, The Definitely Not Coordinated With Stephen Colbert Super PAC made an ad, and I figured you’d want to know. I’ve attached the press release below, so hopefully your mouse’s scroll-wheel isn’t broken.

The spot takes Romney's claim that corporations are people, along with his history of buying companies and breaking them apart, to its comedically logical conclusion: Mitt Romney is a serial killer.

Watch the John Lithgow-voiced ad above and let us know what you think of Colbert and Stewart's latest political stunt, and whether or not you think the spot will sway voters in South Carolina to vote for "Not Mitt Romney."
