Rob Ford Animation

Rob Ford animation clips take a (very) dark turn

We've seen some pretty out there animations of Rob Ford since the crack controversy broke earlier this year, from wacky Taiwanese takes on the mayor's popularity rating to late night talk shows riffing on holiday classics. But this new clip from Next Media Animation surely takes the cake for creepy factor.

Less funny than it is chilling and bizarre, the narrative follows Ford through a failed re-election attempt, divorce, and ultimately his death (I won't reveal how that happens, but you can probably guess). Although I wouldn't call it realistic, the clip makes one uncomfortable precisely because at least some of it is imaginable. Is it tasteful? Not in the slightest. Does it cross a line? Probably. And yet it's hard to stop watching after you've hit play.
