Ford has admitted that he "had a couple beers," but many have suggested the mayor looks more than a little intoxicated in videos posted online.
It's the mayor's alleged drunkeness, as well as the debunked claim that Ford offers to get a man in one of the videos "blow" (he says "cologne"), that has landed him a third starring role.
The first came after the blockbuster allegations that several journalists had viewed a video of Ford smoking what appears to be crack cocaine. The second was released after Gawker's "Crackstarter" campaign to raise funds to buy the video reached its goal.
Ford has denied that the video exists and said he does not do drugs.
Regardless of where the truth lies, there's no doubt the scandal has made Ford big in Taiwan.
