This Is the Best Political Ad of 2016

With less than two weeks until the election, you’re probably sick of being bombarded by campaign ads, which seem to be increasingly negative these days. But in Texas, one local politician has nailed it with this light hearted and comical ad titled “Please Re-Elect Gerald.”

"Gerald really doesn't have any hobbies," begins the ad introducing Gerald Daugherty, a Republican seeking re-election as a Travis County Commissioner.

And in the next 60 seconds Daugherty is portrayed as a family man with no hobbies except trying to come up with new ways to fix the problems in Travis County.

Sick of her husband at home droning on about things like the cost per inmate in the county jail or details about the tax rate, his wife, Charlyn, who clearly wants him out of the house, pleads with viewers: “Please re-elect Gerald. Please.”

Enjoy, this is definitely the best political ad of the year:
