Now, we’re cooking with Gas

In an earlier post, I wondered aloud why Melancon didn’t come hard after Vitter on the prostitution scandal (was there a pun in there somewhere).

Well, this isn’t a commercial for air, as it runs 2 minutes, but I think it’s pretty darn good. I love the way they parody the reality crime show genre. Also notice here how they stay with the parody the entire way through.  There’s little that feels like a political ad, they really stuck with the concept all the way through.  (I wonder if the people really wanted anonymity or if it was just part of the genre they’re parodying, in either case I think it works.)

One question is will they have the guts to put this on the air?  I can easily see the promo version of this video, next on “Forgotten Crimes…”

The real question is this too little too late, or will this be the knock out punch to Vitter.

[Editor’s Note: According to Talking Points Memo, the two minute piece is the ad, and it’s going to run on cable.]
