Watch: A “Glee” themed political attack ad

Pin it

I guess if you're going to take the low road, you might at least be entertaining about it. We've brought you a lot of political ads this season — because this election year has been clearly insane and its ads have followed suit — but most of them tried to be serious and ended up being comical. This one, for Illinois gubernatorial candidate and current governor Pat Quinn, tries to be comical and sort of succeeds! Which is pretty much all you can ask for:

They even managed to find someone who actually sounds like the Glee "Previously on…" guy (who I've actually always thought was Cory Monteith — am I wrong?). Oh, and the political message? I think we've firmly established that such a thing has no place in these ads. But that "Edu…ed…edu" part was pretty bad.
