Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall flubs his lines and hams it up in some television ad outtakes his party retained from last fall's provincial election.

Wall's Saskatchewan Party posted the election ad bloopers on YouTube on Monday, along with a message from the re-elected premier.

"From Tami, our kids and me, thank you to our Saskatchewan Party candidates, members and supporters for their continued encouragement and kindness," Wall wrote.

"To you, and everyone else, here is a special video that hopefully helps start your 2012 with a smile."

During the 1½-minute video, Wall can be seen screwing up his lines, nearly tripping on a stone step, rejecting takes he didn't like, and apologizing to his camera crew numerous times.

"You could just say, 'Brad messed up.' I don't mind," he says to the crew at one point.

The Saskatchewan Party secured its second majority government by a landslide on Nov. 7, capturing a historic 64.2 per cent of the popular vote.
