Former ambassador to China and Utah governor Jon Huntsman Jr. is gearing up to run for president! That single human being in Iowa, at least, is pleased as punch. What do we know about this blossoming mute? According to this ad, he's the "candidate for president who rides motocross to relax." Nifty! That Oval Office fridge better be stocked like the dickens with Mountain Dew Code Red.
This is the latest in a series of short web ads that Huntsman's campaign has been releasing in the build-up to tomorrow's campaign launch, in front of the Statue of Liberty. He is riding his kewl moto through (what we believe to be) Utah's Monument Valley in each of them. We learn a new fact at each stop along the way. Did you know that he has "seven children, one from India, one from China"? Little spy children are so cute. Or that he "did not become famous with his band 'Wizard'"? That's okay, though. Who says there are no second acts in American life? Now he'll become famous as the guy who loses a primary to Mitt Romney.
