Herman Cain is long gone from the presidential race, but his crazy ads have yet to concede.

The latest puts a rabbit in a catapult before a Stephen Colbert look-alike blows it to smithereens with a shotgun. The rabbit represents small business. The violence and destruction represents … President Obama’s stimulus plan, of course.

The advertisement pays high-contrast homage to the “this is your brain on drugs” campaign from the 1990s. A small girl in a dress looks at the viewer and asks repeatedly “any questions?” Then Cain looks across a scorched landscape.

We might have had the bunny take a long pull off a cigarette, but that’s splitting bunny hairs. Either way, don’t go anywhere Cain Solutions—we’re counting on you to keep the rest of the political season ridiculous.
