'SCARY MOVIE' PRODUCER MAKES CAMPAIGN AD; MOCKS DEMOCRATS Tue Oct 10 2006 15:13:16 ET

**Exclusive**

The DRUDGE REPORT has obtained an exclusive copy of a "scary" campaign advertisement created by Hollywood producer and director David Zucker that was intended to be used by GOP organizations in the closing weeks of the 2006 campaign.

However, the advertisement was deemed "too hot" by GOP strategists all across Washington, DC who have refused to use it!

[VIDEO LINK]

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7h3GPc_yMCE

In the ad, Zucker, producer of SCARY MOVIE 4, recreates former Clinton Secretary of State Madeleine Albright's 2000 visit to North Korea. During the visit, Secretary Albright presented North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il with a basketball autographed by former NBA superstar Michael Jordan.

An actress playing Secretary Albright is shown presenting Kim Jong Il with the Michael Jordan basketball, painting the walls of Osama bin Laden's Afghanistan cave and turning a blind eye to suicide bombers. In one scene her skirt rips as she changes the tire of a Middle Eastern dictator's limousine.

One GOP strategist said "jaws dropped" when the ad was first viewed. "Nobody could believe Zucker thought any political organization could use this ad. It makes a point, but it's way over the top."

Zucker is the producer and director of comedies such as "Airplane" and "The Naked Gun." In 2004, Zucker, a longtime Democrat, embraced the Republican Party based on concerns he had about national security issues and voted for President George W. Bush.

An election? Its a time when people go to the polls to choose their leaders... but that's not important right now.

This ad sounds no more outlandish than the ads Patty Wetterling is running in Minnesota's 6th CD. They are full of outright lies and distortions.

you gotta understand the "new media." you officially distance yourself from the racy stuff, knowing full well it's going to get full play in the "underground." All the more so because you say you "don't approve."

The keystone of propaganda is that the medium does the influencing, regardless of who says they "approve" of the message.

It is on You tube for all to see. Plus the publicity generated by having it leaked to Drudge will have all a twitter. In the meantime the GOP takes the high road. Pretty cool.

It's funnier than anything I've seen on SNL for years.

I loved the ad.

They should run it. Sometimes a little humor illustrates things better.

Of course the phony highbrow set will complain about its contents.

Are you kidding? Airplane and The Naked Gun are two of the funniest movies I've ever seen.

Of course, considering the current Foley mess, I guess the "Joey, do you like movies about gladiators?" and the "Have you ever seen a grown man naked?" lines didn't make it into the GOP spot. :-)

Scary Movie is great.

A bit over the top, but it is satire.

They had their moments.

Mrs. Lurkin doesn't understand why I think the funniest gag is the guy in the disco pointing to the knife in his back and Julie Haggerty trying to pick up the 'dance moves'...

Don't forget the very underrated "Top Secret!"

Hillary Flammond: My uncle was born in America.
Nick Rivers: Oh, really?
Hillary Flammond: But he was one of the lucky ones. He managed to escape in a balloon during the Jimmy Carter presidency.

Too bad the GOP doesn't really want to win the election. If they did, they'd recognize how devastating that ad would be to the Democrats and plaster it in every media market they could afford.
