Does your state have strange political ads?

Maybe it's a Texas thing, but some of these ads are downright strange.

hello.world.
I have TiVo and fast forward through commercials. I just can't bare to watch them. I don't find political ads to be truthful or informative, so I made double sure I fastforward them.
That's right, I said it! I wear scrunchies!!

Big John, if I were you, I would be humiliated...

wow. I wasn't sure if it was a political ad, a Walker, Texas Ranger re-run, or a commercial for bbq sauce.

"you're doin' the Lord's work for Texas.."
oh dear.

Oy vey...Big John, doin' the lord's work... I don't think I could live in Texas...
I've seen the Big John ad somewhere!

We get Washington State ads and they aren't weird, just bad. I don't understand why negative ads have to look so cheap and tacky.


when I first saw the Big John ad, I thought it was a fake. Then I met him in person. He does have a slammin pair of ostrich cowboy boots though...

Minneapolis, MN
Um... all of them.

Cause everything's bigger in Texas
hello.world.
I honestly thought it was a parody when I saw the John Cornyn ad in the beginning...

But ever since I've moved to TX, I keep having bouts of culture shock and I figured this was just another one of those thing I'd never been exposed to that Texans considered "normal" (like people on horses at stoplights and those cheesy car ads or being the only person in the entire store who speaks any English).

lol at Big John! Pure comedy. Full of TX stereotypes.

We get no cool commercials in my state. It's boring!!

That's the thing...it's stereotyping Texans. Yes, there are Texans out there that fit the stereotyping...but most of us don't. I don't own any boots, don't own a ranch...I rode a horse for the first and only time two years ago at the age of 35, I hate country music (well, most of it...there's a few good songs), and I find the stereotyping insulting. It really makes us Texans look ignorant.
I do like to say "y'all" though. I can't help it...it's a functional word. Y'all = you all...it's a contraction.

But then again, there are areas of Texas that fit the stereotype a little more...and I refuse to live in those areas of Texas. Scary!!!!

We have nothing nearly as weird as those ads that I've seen, just your run of the mill low-budget local political ads.

I wonder if Cornyn's campaign got Jimmy Dean's permission to use "Big Bad John"? I grew up with my dad singing that song ALL the time, so it made me laugh.

I looked up Steve Novick - he really does have a hook on his left hand. He seems to have a great sense of humor about it. From Wikipedia:
Novick was born with significant physical disabilities which include a missing left hand and missing fibula bones in his legs. As a result he uses a hook prosthesis and stands approximately 4'9" tall.[2] His unusual physicality has prompted him to use the slogan "The Fighter with the Hard Left Hook." His levity about his physical stature has drawn both positive and negative reviews from the press.[2][3]
Yes, it is.
