Definitely Not Coordinated With Stephen Colbert Super PAC Releases Anti-Romney Ad
Want to hear the star of Harry and the Hendersons -- no, not Harry, the human one -- narrate a Mitt Romney attack ad? You're in luck. Watch the above video.
It comes from the Definitely Not Coordinated With Stephen Colbert Super PAC -- also known as Americans For A Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow -- and deems Romney "Mitt the Ripper," for his work at Bain Capital as a "serial killer" of corporations.
John Lithgow, naturally, narrates, and the ad will air in South Carolina this week, according to BuzzFeed.
In a release for the ad, Jon Stewart, who now heads the Definitely Not Coordinated With Stephen Colbert Super PAC, writes that:
When I took over this Super PAC, I had no idea there'd be so much email-writing. Also, there are a lot of plants around Super PAC office with extremely specific watering schedules. Seriously, does a Northwood Spotted Fern really need to be watered "thrice fortnightly at dusk"?
Meanwhile, Jason Zinoman recently noted in New York Times that Colbert, who announced Thursday that he is starting an exploratory committee for a run for "president of the United States of South Carolina" -- "is a serious performer playing a silly character, while the media and political world are deeply silly but pretending to be serious."
So, for the sake of silliness, here is a trailer for Harry and the Hendersons:
