The same funny (and often randy) folks from Taiwan — who used computer animation to explain what happened to Tiger Woods — have produced a video on “Weinergate.” The one that animates the pickle in which Anthony Weiner finds himself is so “randy,” I will not post it at this site. (If you must see it, click here.)
What I did notice, however, is that Mitt Romney’s embryonic campaign has embedded a pop-up ad in the video. Not sure that’s such a good idea.
Granted, Internet advertising can be tricky. You pay to set your ads to hit certain keywords, and who knows where it shows up. But still, it’s not exactly presidential to have your … er … “Stand With Mitt” banner ad (which goes to Romney’s donation page) show up in a video like this.
