Here at CP, we usually shy away from sharing our political opinions with one another, let alone you, our esteemed audience. Politics is a nasty business, nastier than any combat sport could ever claim to be, and discussing it often ends in much less hilarious fashion than our MMA-themed debates.
But when retired UFC legend Chris Lytle announced that he would be vying for a seat in the Indiana State Senate, we decided to put our various affiliations aside and rally behind one of the greatest figures the sport has ever seen. Because when we can come to an agreement with Dana White on anything, it must be for the greater good, right? Obviously Tapout co-founder and incredibly talented director Bobby Razak agrees that Lytle is the man to begin America’s return to greatness, starting with Indiana’s 28th District, and put together the following campaign ad for “Lights Out.” Unfortunately absent from the video are any highlights from Lytle’s highlight-abundant career, but that’s probably for the better.
In either case, check out the video below, then somehow turn this into a heated debate on Obama vs. Romney, because we know you will.
When asking yourself, “Is this the perfect political ad?”, first consider this:
Is our candidate shown walking in a fancy suit? Check.
Is it in slow-mo? Double check.
Is his all-American family there? Chiggity check.
Tell me, can he sign documents? You bet your sweet ass he can.
Are there fire trucks? You know there are fire trucks.
Is everything tied together with a beautiful string orchestra? That would be a big 10-4, Potato Nation.
You see, Lindland? This is where you effed up.

And if we have any readers in the greater Indiana area, make sure you swing over to the 28th District and place your vote for “Light’s Out” when the polls open on May 8th.
