Rob Ford Video

New video of Rob Ford "drunk, swearing in Jamaican"

A new video of Rob Ford posted to YouTube is sure to bring more heat on the mayor of Toronto. Posted by a user under the name Toronto TheCity with the title "New Video of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford Drunk, Swearing in Jamaican Patois? Bumbaclot," this clip appears to show Ford at a fast food joint, though there is no indication of when the video was shot or the exact location. We can't confirm the authenticity of the video nor provide additional context at this time, but it certainly is bizarre.

In it, the Mayor utters the phrase "bumbaclot" numerous times and adopts a Jamaican patois in speaking about his counter surveillance measures and his attention to communities like St. James Town, Jane and Finch, and Malvern.

Update:

Speculation on both Twitter and Reddit has the location of the video as Steak Queen on Rexdale Blvd. Doug Ford, meanwhile, has already stated that this video could not have been shot yesterday.

Here is a (likely not 100% accurate) attempt at a transcript of the video:

FORD: [JAMAICAN ACCENT] "Cocksucker. Fucking Chief Blair [inaudible] that man cheech me around for five months, man. Bumbaclot. [Inaudible] Me and him [inaudible] leave me alone. They got 5 months for him. And him trying to tell me, bro, we're countersurveilling the guy, you know what I mean. He's hiding here. I'm a hide in here. I'm a... Oh, we don't... fuck off. You know how much money that cost him? I said bro, just [inaudbible]. No, money, money, money. [Inaudible] Bumbaclot, man. I swear to God man, honestly man.

MAN: "That's to go, man."

FORD: "It's seriously shit, man. It's serious shit, bro.

MAN: "Oh, we know. Oh, we know. All we know is we got the best mayor in the world, man."

FORD: "No, bro. Seriously."

MAN: "This guy deserves to be even better than Prime Minister Harper...

FORD: No, no, no no, no."

MAN: "Harper is the guy..."

FORD: "I'm a straight up guy, you know."

MAN: "I always said he gonna become the prime minister."

FORD: "Who was in THC. Who go out in Jamestown, and Jane and Finch, and then Malvern-" [Inaudible.]

...No, bro. Seriously.

The Toronto Star has uploaded an audio clip of the Mayor admitting to being drunk last night - "on his own personal time," so nothing he did could possibly be offensive - but denying that he was on drugs.

Reporters demanded to know if Ford had been driving or who had driven him to Steak Queen last night, and if the Mayor lied when he said he stopped drinking. "It's my own personal time" was Ford's only reply.
