Mike Tyson Parodies Herman Cain in Spoof Campaign Video
Mike Tyson has parodied Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain in a spoof campaign video.
The boxing champion joined forces with Funny or Die to make a spoof video about Cain, called "Campaign Promises,” CNN reports.
The 45-year-old begins by introducing himself as the man who’s been yelling the number nine on your TV, poking fun his Cain’s tax plan.
In the campaign ad parody, Tyson tells the American people that he [Cain] has been performing well in the national polls because "the Tea Party loves crazy more than they hate Black."
The former heavyweight champion does not refer to recent allegations that Cain sexually harassed four women, but portrays the ex-pizza magnate as wildly eccentric, the New York Daily News reports.
Cain, who has been dogged by mounting sexual harassment allegations of late, is scheduled to appear on David Letterman on November 18, Reuters reports.
The Funny or Die site also features spoofs of other candidates, including Ron Paul, Michelle Bachmann, and Mitt Romney.
Professional impersonator Reggie Brown is seen as President Obama, while Saturday Night Live star Darrell Hammond portrays Rick Perry, Erin Gibson plays Michelle Bachmann, and Rob Delaney parodies Mitt Romney, reports CNN.
