Obama Impersonator Leaves Desperate Voicemail in GOP Candidate’s Ad

Since 2008, the “phone call” motif has been used in the occasional campaign ad. Who’s ready to take the 3 A.M. call? Whose calls will they take? And whose will they ignore? Well, a new Republican ad uses a Barack Obama impersonator to take the phone call ad to some odd lengths.

Republican Congressman Jack Kingston is in the GOP primary race to be the next Georgia senator. and in this new ad he gets a voicemail from the president himself (well, a very convincing audio double) telling him to back off Obamacare, which is something Kingston proudly says he’ll never do.

Also, the video is titled “Call Me Maybe,” which is very misleading, as there is no singing whatsoever in the ad. (If there was, though, that would be a whole different ballgame…)
