Gil for President-compressed

Introducing Honest Gil, the most trustworthy politician you’ll ever meet.

In 2014, the world was introduced to Honest Gil, a satirical politician who only tells the truth.

When he first made his debut, Gil Fulbright (or Phil Gulbright. Or Bill Fulbright. Or Phillip Mimouf-Wifarts. You’ll understand once you’ve watched the ad below) was challenging then Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and his Democratic rival Alison Lundergan Grimes in what was then the most expensive Senate election of all time. Now, the satirical politician has returned to campaign for something even higher: President of the United States.

Of course, when first released this ad, it was in September of 2015 as the U.S. presidential election was just beginning to heat up. Regardless, it’s still worth watching

Gil begins his cookie-cutter political commercial promising to be “a president with the conviction to nod, the courage to point, and the experience to cram buzzwords into everything I jobs.”

He then assures the populace that he will make education “um…good,” to improve the economy “by repeating the word jobs,” and “blablabla, something to get votes from women and minorities.” The dramatic camera angle and bland music undoubtedly help assure voters that he’s legitimate.

In fact, it’s quite similar to his first campaign ad (below):

When Gil’s campaign ad for POTUS was first released, it was an instant hit with voters. Within the first 24 hours, his campaign commercial received over 1 million views. Perhaps this is because Americans are becoming disillusioned with the amount of money in politics.

Gil Fulbright for president, anyone?
