WATCH: This Democrat's 'Top Gun' campaign ad may be the worst ad in history

StaffRebel Columnist

Congressional Democrat candidate Daniel Helmer may not make it out of the danger zone — let alone lift off — after a brutal Top Gun-style campaign ad.



The ad, called "Helmer Zone," is done as a parody of the cheesy 1986 movie. Helmer, doing his best (worst?) "Maverick" impersonation, takes on an actress playing his opponent Barbara Comstock.

He then launches into a song where he voices support for abortion and Obamacare while attacking Comstock for appealing to right-wing voters.

So far the video has 1000 upvotes and 2000 downvotes on YouTube. Perhaps people don't agree with Helmer, who says on his campaign website that “patriotism is progressive.”

What do you think? Is this the worst campaign ad you've ever seen?

Very funny. He just proved that he is an idiot.

Perhaps the Republicans should make an advertisement showing him on a bike with training wheels and still falling over. Yea, that would be a good reply advert making him even more a laughing stock. The bike should have a big banana seat, high handle bars with streamers, and he should be making varoom varoom noises. And don’t forget the full face covering motor cycle helmet. Refer to him as the uncoordinated kid.

Think Monty Python.

I’m sure the airhead Dems will like it.
Did anyone notice the maturity displayed by the great Jane Fonda at the Emmy’s? Thankfully, Dolly Parton corrected Fonda and Lilly Tomlin politely and corrected their insolence with love and a whole lotta class.

If he had half a brain he would deep six that ad immediately.
