Behind the Ad: Unintentionally hilarious "American Values"

(Another installment in our extensive "Behind the Ad" series.)

Where: North Carolina.

What's going on: Every now and then a political ad comes along that looks like it must be the beginning of one of those Saturday Night Live send-up commercials. But no, this one is real. Failed Republican presidential candidate Gary Bauer has a group called "American Values" and this ad, called "New Morning," is not, apparently, intended as a joke.

As you will see, the punchline comes from an anguished woman who says, "Obama is trying to force gay marriage on this country. That's not the change I voted for." The man with her then says, "That's not the change I voted for either."

Yes, President Obama is going to force that woman to marry another woman and that man to marry another man. He's going to force everyone to be gay. Damn him!

Seriously though, tell me you're not half thinking Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg should be saying these lines until you realize this is not a joke, at least not intentionally.
