Unbeknownst to many, comedian Aziz Ansari has struck up a bit of a relationship with the President of the United States. Barack Obama has not only invited Ansari to some fancy dinners, but he even called Ansari out at a New York fundraiser a few months ago.
“Now, this is big because Malia is a big ‘Parks and Recreation’ fan. So having Aziz here is like the only thing she thinks is worth me doing,” Obama said. “I know he’s backstage, but I just want to remind him: I’ve got more Twitter followers than you, man. I just want to keep him humble and hungry.”
Now news outlets are reporting that the president’s campaign team has targeted Ansari to be a spokesperson for the president’s re-election bid.
“President Obama’s campaign has recruited actor and comedian Aziz Ansari to stare down individuals until they register to vote. At least, that’s what the campaign’s latest promotion for their voter registration website says,” reported The Hill, a world news blog. “A photo of the “Parks and Recreation” star reads, ‘I’ll blink when you register.’”
Check out the ad below, which the president tweeted a few days ago. Tell us what you think! Will the ad work? Is Aziz a good choice?
