Ohio political candidate spoofs LeBron

In what probably isn't the first and certainly won't be the last, Ohio political candidate Lee Fisher spoofed LeBron's "Rise" commercial with his own "What Should I Do?" ad.

It's not perfect, but for a guy running for the U.S. Senate in Ohio, I'd say it's a pretty good move. Fisher nails just about every aspect of the commercial, especially the opening shot which is perfectly done.

I also like the "Break!" basketball slaps he does a couple of times which seem out of place and awkward. Those completely sold me on his candidacy. Also, his dunk over a LeBron cut-out was a nice touch. It looked like he really got up there.

But for a guy that's trying to make up some ground in Ohio, this will certainly play well to the people. It gets the message across, is clever and it's already making some good noise on the Internet. Well done Lee Fisher. Your pandering to the emotions of jilted Cavalier fans could very well work.

LeBron James IS a spoof of himself. He can run for office when he can point out where Ohio is on a map.

He was down by 20 points in the polls to the Republican candidate, so he dropped the L-Bomb. I appreciate the strategy, but Ohio will keep its 1 Dem 1 GOP Senate split until at least 2012.
My prediction: LeBron goes into politics in 2030 and spoofs himself.
