The alleged Rob Ford crack video has many mysteries attached to it, but on Friday, one stood out a bit larger than the rest who, or what, is Slurpy?
When the National Posts Megan OToole paid a visit to the address linked to the alleged video, she was given a number of odd details from the man living in the Rexdale apartment unit but it was the revelation of a Rob Ford doppelganger named Slurpy that sent social media into a tailspin.
The apartment dweller, who claimed to have seen the alleged video, told OToole that he and his friends briefly considered making a fraudulent crack video starring an acquaintance and Rob Ford lookalike nicknamed Slurpy, in an attempt to discredit the real thing.
Slurpy declined to participate, not wishing to be part of the growing controversy unfolding at City Hall, the man who answered the door at apartment 1703 at 320 Dixon Road told OToole.
We dont like Rob Ford getting screwed, the man added. We wanted to help him 85% of [young Somalis] are very upset about these guys with the video.
As OToole noted in her article, the claims added to the growing list of surreal developments in the Ford saga which make it difficult to know what to believe and what to dismiss.

To all- please ping me to Canadian topics.
At this point, I'm absolutely convinced there is no video. It's vapourware.
The media's trained monkeys (particularly the Toronto Red Star and the CBC) have been grinding out this story for more than two weeks now without a shred of evidence. I expect that in a little while it will simply disappear down the memory hole, its purpose—smear Rob Ford—accomplished.
As Limbaugh says: it's not the nature of the evidence, it's the seriousness of the accusation.
