|Herman Cain's Avant-Garde PAC Ad|
Former Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain debuted the first commercial for his Super PAC this week, and, well, it's been getting a lot of attention. In it, a little girl pours tar on a dying goldfish in a disturbing metaphor to the current economy and stimulus spending.
Stephen Colbert, who held an election rally with Cain earlier this year in South Carolina, was so inspired by the "artack ad" that he created one in its likeness for his own Super PAC.
According to Colbert, "I chugged a bottle of Robitussin, punched myself in the temple with a porcelain cow creamer and made an avant-garde ad of my own about all the things we forgot we used to be mad about."
Watch the clip above to see Colbert's new PAC ad, featuring, among other things, a man on fire, a Venus Flytrap and a dog milking a cow.
