NMAtv Imagines Rob Ford's Demise in Spectacularly Creepy Fashion
A hard but intriguing watch.

 

As we’ve documented before, the folks at Taiwan’s Next Media Animation are no stranger to the Rob Ford sagaTheir latest video takes their creative and fantastical Ford imagination to the a higher dark, excessively morbid level.

This five-minute video is much like other NMA videos in its visually striking animiation and impressive verisimilitude-establishing small details (a CBCNews reporter makes an appearance), but this one is spectacularly creepy.

The video sees a post-2014 election loss Ford freefall into a world of divorce and disarray. Aiding in the unsettling peculiarities of the video is a heartrending light piano-playing score. The video features, amongst other disturbing images, an overweight and despondent Ford in a roach-infested motel. We won’t spoil the rest. Regardless of how you feel about Ford’s public image and recent behavior, this video imagines a story that none of us want to see. You almost wish they took the Tristan Gough route and aimed for comedy. Alas. View the video below.
