The World’s Most Bizarre Political Ads, Part II

in Campaigns and elections

My call last week for bizarre political ads from across the globe received a fair number of peculiar and sometimes downright frightening examples. Especially popular were singing politicians, like these German Social-Democrats and Iceland’s Best Party, which actually won the mayoral election for which the ad was made although, according to commenter Sona, they failed to deliver on their campaign promise to bring a polar bear to Reykjavik’s zoo. The prize in this category, however, goes to this Polish politician who “sang” his campaign message accompanied by a death metal band.

Other political campaigns thought it would be a good idea to feature talking fish , yogi jumpers, and wrestlers. The scariest electoral broadcast by far was by this Japanese politician.
