Whitehorse City Council Commercial Is Just Ridiculous (VIDEO)

Whitehorse's city council is the next summer blockbuster.

While the premise seems absurd, it's the only reasonable explanation for what may very well be the most ridiculous commercial in Canadian history.

Set to the most dramatic music imaginable, Community Cable 9's ad for coverage of city council is interspersed with the most mundane images of councillors imaginable and dialogue that could dry paint.

The edge-of-your-seat climax comes at 0:24 when Mayor Dan Curtis boasts about finding an additional $15,000 for a museum's rec grant.

This clip has meme written all over it and Reddit is on the case. One hilarious Redditor has already set the commercial to Guile's theme from Street Fighter II.

For future renditions, may we suggest this, this, this and this. Get to it Internet.
