Rob Ford Video

Rob Ford celebrates the best summer ever!

Rob Ford has had an amazing summer, don't you know? Controversy-free, he's been able to really enjoy the city and his constituents, getting out to various street festivals and even arm wrestling with Hulk Hogan (and winning!). Oh, and he was solely responsible for securing a subway in Scarborough, a long dream of his. In other words, it was the summer of Ford!

Or, at least, that's what this new promotional video would have you believe. "This short film is my way of thanking Toronto residents for a phenomenal summer," the YouTube description reads. "I hope that everyone who watches it will get a fraction of the enjoyment I had meeting thousands of residents this past summer."

I just love this thing. Besides the cringe-worthy production values, it's just an exquisite take on a summer that was probably the most challenging that any municipal politician has faced ever. To Ford's credit, no city resources were used in its production. Enjoy!
