Ballad of Rob Ford makes its debut on Jimmy Kimmel
It only took a little over four months for Rob Ford to go from "cost cowboy" and "rollback viceroy" to the "drunk-driving, crack-smoking, Mayor of Toronto" in the lyrics of songwriters.
Singer and American Idol contestant Chris Daughtry wrote and performed a new song on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night - "The Ballad of Rob Ford."
In it, Daughtry sings "Batman had Robin, Lone Ranger had Tonto, but I'm the drunk-driving, crack-smoking mayor of Toronto." It has its funny moments, to be sure - but perhaps the best part is the sheer lunacy that such a song exists and was performed by a former American Idol contestant on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Like, what?
