John Huntsman’s daughters support his campaign with an awkward “Sexyback” parody

Pin it

In their continued effort to make their dad's presidential campaign entirely about themselves, John Huntsman's daughters released a questionably relevant version of "Sexyback." You know, just like when a young Chelsea Clinton used to sing R. Kelly jams about her dad's economic policy on the campaign trail! Totally regular, right? 

Abby, Liddy, and Mary Anne Huntsman have already gained notoriety for their, um, unconventional social media presence on their dad's struggling campaign for the Republican presidential nomination. The obvious next step was an uncomfortable song parody, which the girls deliver in spades, replacing "Sexyback" lyrics like "I'll let you whip me if I misbehave" with "he rocks the awesome China policy." 

"Huntsman's Back" also takes aim at Herman Caine's oft-mocked 9-9-9- plan and just about all of the other Republican candidates still in the race. I'm not sure whether or not this will actually make a tangible difference in their dad's campaign, or just be a fun thing for the internet to pay attention for a couple of days. What do you think — helping or hurting?
