Ford Gets the Taiwanese Animation Treatment Again in Wake of Danforth Incident
Fordnation's YouTube contingency not impressed

Taiwan’s Next Media Animation studio is back with a third animated Ford video, this time focusing on the mayor’s “drunk Greek life” and “trip to jail.” Having already rendered animated interpretations of the alleged crack video story and the ensuing Crackstarter campaign, the studio’s latest Ford-focused offering highlights the mayor’s recent drunken appearance at the Taste of the Danforth festival, in which the Mayor was reportedly slurring his speech and was overhead offering “bone” or “cologne”, depending on who you ask. The report also tries to connect the dots between Ford’s recent attempted after-hours visit with jail inmate Bruno Bellissimo and the mayor’s apparent connection to the world of drug dealers. As per the NMA norm, the video is both bizarre and incredible.

Several Internet users have taken to the web to add their two-cents on the new animation, such as YouTube commenter ienjoyeatingcheese, who claimed: “leave him alond hes the best mayor this city has ever had your all just jelous because hes trying to get rid of taxes and make union a thing of the passed! Ford nation! this is are city!”

Many, like political anarchist diehard2006, simply argue: “Lame vid”.

Watch as a pantless Ford roams the streets of Toronto, knocking names off his hit list, Kill Bill style.

Notable observations:

– Everyone walking the streets of Toronto is either a Mountie, a Maple Leaf, or an old Greek person.

– They refer to the mayor as Rob ‘Facepalm’ Ford

– The first name on Ford’s hit list is a “Snitching Beaver”
