Mayoral Hopeful Makes Ad Soaking Wet in His Underwear, Swears Off Strip Clubs Kookiest political spot ever?

Man, who woulda thunk Midwestern municipal politics could make Anthony Weiner's campaign antics look boring? But Minneapolis mayoral candidate Jeff Wagner has pulled it off, emerging from a lake dressed only in his undershorts with what appears to be a can of beer before demanding that his city "wake the f*ck up!"

Wagner is actually a real candidate. Part of the amusing copy—let's assume he scripted this—includes his promise to "quit going to strip clubs."

Check out his 60-second plea, as well as a memorable political video from Alabama's Dale Peterson a couple years ago.
