WATCH: Mitt Romney Dresses as Luchador and Kicks Butt For Charity

There are few words to accurately describe the following video. Taken on its own, far, far from context, it is a thing of wonder: A quiet Mormon man who ran a failed campaign for presidency, has no understanding of the lives of ordinary people, and once expressed a desire to have Mexican heritage leaps into a boxing ring dressed as Jack Black‘s Nacho Libre character.

Of course, that’s exactly what happened, but with the context — he was doing it for charity — Mitt Romney‘s stunt is much less shocking.

Still, watch:

It looks like the fundraiser was for CharityVision, which is a non-profit that works with the visually impaired in the developing world. Their website does display advertisement for a fight night.

Pro wrestling has gotten a little political in the past, but this is sure next-level. The GOP is undoubtedly hoping that Romney will burst into the RNC wearing this exact outfit, steal the nomination from Donald Trump, and yell, “Psych! I planned this the whole time!”
