With the purchase of a cheap suit and tie from J.C. Penny’s, a green painted mask, and a twitter message calling for a local dancer who “can do contemporary moves and 1970s disco moves,” the campaign of Massachusetts congressional candidate Sean Bielat took an obnoxious, irresponsible career politician and turned him into a video sensation that is sure to try drive a point home to voters.
In what is undoubtedly one of the most amusing, yet truthful ads of the 2010 midterm election, Republican Sean Bielat and his team have taken the words of Barney “Big Fannie & Freddie Mac” Frank, and put them to music in a diddy called” The Barney Funk” Then after a few applicants demonstrated their moves, the Bielat team, picked one agile dancer to don a suit, tie, and green painted mask as they danced to a lyrical versions of some of Rep. Frank’s most memorable to phrases.
The result was the “Barney Shuffle” and driving home of the message that despite more than thirty years in offfice and his role in the congressional regulating scandal that was responsible for the housing market collapse which ushered in a worldwide economic crisis, Barney Frank simply dances around the issues, never addressing the real problems or his hand in adding to those problems.
According to the Bielat campaign:
” Nobody dances around the issues quite like Barney Frank.
