New video channels Rob Ford as a 10 year old

Rob Ford's excuses at the peak of the crack scandal were pretty childish - "I cannot comment on a video I haven't seen or does not exist," "you're not asking me the right question" - but in the mouth of an actual kid they're pretty, err, frightening.

Here's a short film that puts (slightly tweaked) Rob Ford quotes in the mouth of a 10 year old girl who is accused of breaking a window (or "doing the crack").

It's funny and scary at the same time.
