Hampton Yount is not sure we would have made it this far if political ads were always so terrifying. (1:38)

LIKE, I LIKE--I LIKE POLITICS A LITTLE BIT,

LIKE, THE GAME OF IT.IT JUST MAKES ME THINK,

WOULD WE HAVE MADE ITAS FAR AS WE HAVE AS A SOCIETY

IF WE JUST ALWAYS HADSCARY-AS-SHIT POLITICAL ADS?

I DON'T THINK SO.I DON'T THINK WE WOULD HAVE

MADE IT THIS FARWITH ADS JUST LIKE,

"ABRAHAM LINCOLN SAYSHE WANTS TO END THE CIVIL WAR.

"BUT WHY DOES HE SPENDALL OF HIS FREE TIME

"AT THE THEATER?

"PAID FOR BY THE COUNCILOF JOHN WILKES BOOTH

FOR A BETTER AMERICA."

"GEORGE WASHINGTON SAYSHE WANTS TO BE YOUR PRESIDENT,

BUT WHAT'S A PRESIDENT?"

"F.D.R. WON'T STANDFOR HIS COUNTRY."

OH, TOO ZUNE.

TOO MICROSOFTMP3 PLAYER ZUNE.

[laughs]

I USED TO GOTO MCDONALD'S A LOT.

I WAS THINKINGABOUT HOW THE CHARACTERS

TO SELL MCDONALD'S--LIKE, THE RONALD MCDONALD GANG,

THAT ISTHE WEIRDEST AMALGAMATION

OF THINGS, LIKE, EVER.

I IMAGINEIT WAS JUST, LIKE,

THE MCDONALD'S P.R. DEPARTMENTJUST HIRED, LIKE,

A GERMAN PERFORMANCE ARTISTTO COME UP WITH THE CHARACTERS.

[German accent]I HAVE THE PERFECT WAY

TO SELLYOUR HAMMED-BURGERS.

IMAGINE A CLOWNDRESSED IN COLORS

THAT WOULD MAKEA PREGNANT WOMAN VOMIT.

HE GIVES BAGS OF SALTED MEATSTO CHILDREN.

HIS BEST FRIENDSARE A FLIGHTLESS BIRD,

A CRIMINAL,

AND THE PHYSICAL EMBODIMENTOF SORROW, THE GRIMACE!

HIS NAME MEANS"TO BE SAD."
