FUNNY: Twitter Reactions To Herman Cain's Smoking Ad
Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain's latest campaign video begins rather normally — Cain's chief of staff, Mark Block, talks to the camera about Cain's virtues. But at about two thirds of the way through the minute-long ad, something weird happens. Block, his eyes still locked into the camera, takes a long, dramatic drag on a cigarette.
Say it with us: WTF?!?
The unintentionally hilarious and bizarre ad sent shockwaves across the Internet on Tuesday, and the video subsequently went viral. So to sum up what people are saying about Cain now, we've assembled a handful of tweets. Although, interestingly, not all of the tweets address the campaign ad, because, well, let's just say it's not the first crazy thing Cain has done.
