Official Carly Fiorina Video Wins Current Hour Of Internet

by Jim Newell

OH MY GOD “Carlyfornia” Senate candidate Carly Fiorina has struck again on the Internet and the results are monstrous. It’s best at the beginning and end, especially the end, picking up steam at exactly 2:26. “2:26″ is the absolute most terrifying second of video on YouTube since the most recently uploaded clip of Roger Ailes.

Jesus, did David Lynch direct this shit? That was more terrifying than the alien baby thing.

sanantonerose February 3, 2010 at 2:41 pm

HOLY CRAP. I watched with the sound off and it was terrifying! I did enjoy the sheep falling off the pedestal, though.

I thought folks had learned from the last time someone included livestock in their campaign ads:

As for the laser-eyed thingy, it’s clearly a jawa in sheep’s clothing.

Uh, is that a wolf in sheep’s clothing or what?

Hooray For Anything February 3, 2010 at 2:47 pm

That could easily be described as “The Wicker Man” of political ads. Or maybe “the Room”- I haven’t made my mind up

Gopherit February 3, 2010 at 3:01 pm

Jesus fuck. I still hate living in Arizona, but our GOP doesn’t bring the crazy like Cali conservatives. I’m pretty sure that falling sheep was a Lucifer metaphor. Klassy.

Hey, Fiorina… might not want to mention that you have free time to run for office after driving HP into the ground like a railroad spike.
Just saying. Keep the freaky sheep though. That’s awesome.

And what, no “pulling the wool over your eyes” references?

Flanders February 3, 2010 at 3:06 pm

There is so much to appreciate, so much material. The sheep zooming up on the pedestal, though…what is she insinuating there? It is a little alarming, a little erotic.

WadISay February 3, 2010 at 3:07 pm

FWIW, the sheep at 1:46 was the cutest.

TH42 February 3, 2010 at 3:08 pm

[re=506826]sanantonerose[/re]: I know! It’s actually SCARIER with the sound off. The worst part is the first 2:25 really gives no indication of how scary it is going to get.

Mad Brahms February 3, 2010 at 3:09 pm

Holy fuck! It’s a T-1000 in a Hannibal Lector mask!

Seriously, what the hell was that? And “FCINO”? Yeah, made up acronyms are great. The “common people” really love them.

[re=506878]bitchincamaro[/re]: Yep upside-down fake dong cannot support a falling fiscal sheep…wait, what?

The Church of Realism February 3, 2010 at 3:11 pm

The only thing that could have made this thing any better was if the sheep bleated “I’ve been baaaaaaad” as it fell.

WadISay February 3, 2010 at 3:13 pm

I am a little confused by the underlying market research and creative here. Do fiscal conservatives really see themselves as sheep? So that makes the lefties the ravening wolves; mmmm, delicious sheep, cool beans!

So she’s explicitly portraying her constituents as gullible sheeple. That’s awesomely, unconsciously, brutal. Naturally, none of them will get it.

Hooray For Anything February 3, 2010 at 3:18 pm

[re=506886]Mad Brahms[/re]: FCINO– just rolls of the tongue, doesn’t it?

As a Californian, all I can say is I really dread the upcoming Gubernatorial race. It’s going to be race between an 80 year old Democrat who was Governor almost 40 years and is most famous for banging Linday Ronstand, helping Prop 13 pass, and having the nickname “Governor Moonbeam” versus either somebody who destroyed a well known brand and got in trouble with the Feds, somebody whose never voted in an election before, and apparently a furry.

One Yield Regular February 3, 2010 at 3:21 pm

It’s as though the California Livestock Council has produced its own version of “Henry V,” what with the dread and martial music and all the shots of fields.

Also, how does one pronounce “FCINO”?

[re=506821]Larry Fine[/re]: I wish I knew how to quit ewe!

[re=506869]Aurelio[/re]: I was wondering how one might spell a sheep saying the word “back”.

In retrospect, my otherwise brilliantly pithy comment loses something due to the fact that I spelled “back” exactly the same way Ahhhnold says it, thereby diluting the very witty sheep-cum-Terminator “Governator” reference.

Hey, Cargoyle- Rather than using sheep in your Z grade video on teh Youtubes, why not use rhinos instead?
