Oh, for God’s sake, of course it’s a joke, because there are fierce laws that prohibit any non-awful political ads.

Nevertheless, BuzzFeed finds a new path to the imaginary waterfall of goodness (or something like that) with the below clip. And, if I may just go ahead and steal the entire blog post—well, they’re right: stick around for the soaring “Wes Anderson” ad at the end of the clip.

Also: Why is “President John McCain’s” White House apparently located in a warehouse adjacent to the Williamsburg Bridge?
