In this emotional Rob Ford parody, YouTube user gunnarolla, also known as Andrew Gunadie, performs 'The Ballad of Rob Ford.' The musical number was inspired by the words and feelings of the Toronto mayor concerning a video showing him smoking crack cocaine. The Canadian politician has been the subject of significant media attention for admitting his drug use and for his insistence on not only remaining in office, but running for re-election in October 2014.
This particular Rob Ford parody examines both his statements before and after the existence of the video was confirmed. Initially the mayor denied that there was a video, which surfaced earlier this month. The ballad uses direct quotes from press conferences, including the now infamous phrase "in one of my drunken stupors."
