Tonetta Chow

Are these the catchiest jingles of the Toronto election?

While the mayoral election hasn't lacked drama, it has lacked hummable tunes. Chow's anti-Tory unicorn signs are quirky Instagram fodder and Ford's "you can be racist against little red apples" quote kinda gets stuck in your head like it's been pre-autotuned by its own obliviousness, but you'd think Music City could give us something to snap our fingers to beyond a regrettable slew of Rob Ford parody raps (links not included).

So praise the supreme squirrel overlords for Toronto cult sensation Tonetta, devoted Chow supporter, who's come up with lyrical brilliance including "Olivia Chow, vote her in now," "sorry, John Tory," and my favourite, "Ol-iv-i-a, Ol-iv-i-a." You can't argue with catchy.

Toronto's costumed, dancing uncle's most impressive video is probably the Tory-centric baby mask one, but I'll let you watch below and decide for yourself (democracy). Whichever lo-fi ditty gets stuck in your head for the rest of the week should guarantee you remember to vote on Monday.

You can find all of Tonetta's electoral videos so far on his Facebook (NSFW) and share the election earworms / creepers to your heart's delight, unless you're afraid it will scare your relatives away from the polls (or drive them there in droves, depending on your strategy here).
