Libertarian Gary Johnson Blows Up A Watermelon

(Note: Not Gary Johnson)

Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson just released a new campaign video, and it’s symbolism is… well, blunt. The voice-over-less ad shows a watermelon exploding with the text, “This is what Democrats and Republicans have done to [our America]“.

The video is yet another viral campaign ad in what’s already been a busy year for strange, memorable spots, including Rick Perry‘s “Strong” and Herman Cain‘s “Yellow Flowers.”

Johnson might have a little trouble campaigning against the two major parties considering he was part of one until recently. You might remember him as the Republican candidate who was pro-marijuana, stole a joke about Barack Obama from Rush Limbaugh, and wasn’t allowed in most of the debates.

And while I know that this is just a brief campaign ad, I think most can agree that the idea here is oversimplified even by politician standards- the watermelon that is our nation is fractured, and Gary Johnson will put it back together again?

What do you think? Would you vote for a third party candidate like Johnson?
