Porn Star Nikki Benz Tries To Win Grandpa's Vote In 'All For Fun' Toronto Mayoral Campaign Video

Porn star Nikki Benz was denied entry into the Toronto mayoral race last May because her Ontario license had expired. But that hasn't stopped her from having a little fun with her failed campaign bid.

Watch Benz court the elderly vote by wooing grandpa Joe Cole in Ethan Cole's "Explaining Things To My Grandfather" series. Even if it takes a 5 p.m. noise abatement, more bingo and new wheelchair lanes, this adult film actress is willing to do what it takes in the comedy video.

Things get a bit more saucy when Grandpa Joe's buddy enters the picture.

"Let me tell you about my platform," Benz tells him.

"Your platform is staring at me in the face," the friend responds.

In highlighting her supposed campaign several months ago, the "Anal Dream Team" actress told Vice she wanted to resolve traffic problems, bring the adult film industry to Toronto and lower property taxes.

According to a recent poll, John Tory is favored to replace Toronto's controversial mayoral incumbent, Rob Ford, who reportedly has cancer.

Even though Benz's name won't be on the ballot on Oct. 27, at least she gets to comment on the election via YouTube.

"The video is all for fun," Ethan Cole told The Huffington Post. "We really just wanted to highlight the absurdity of Toronto politics."
