Marco Rubio is running for the GOP nomination for president, and when he's not busy getting embarrassed on stage by Chris Christie at a debate, he's… using stock footage of Canada in his campaign commercials?!
Rubio released a campaign commercial called Morning Again on Sunday, and while it otherwise seemed pretty standard — he like, OMG, totally hates Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, y'all — he made one MASSIVE slip-up that was caught immediately!
In the opening scene of the commercial, the skyline shown isn't an American city at all — it's Vancouver, Canada!!!
Ch-ch-check out the opening scene in the commercial (below):
GREAT work, Marco! You're really knockin' their socks off now!
A spokesman for Rubio's campaign responded to the goof-up with a very brief message:
"We hadn't noticed that. We are not going to make Canada an issue in this election."
In fact, the photographer who shot that stock footage scene of the Vancouver skyline, Guy Chavasse, took great pleasure in learning Rubio had mistakenly used it:
"It's pretty funny, isn't it? It's a good-looking video, no doubt, but it's pretty recognizable as Vancouver. I'm not exactly a big Republican fan or a Rubio supporter, but it's always cool to see your stuff being used."
That's one way to look at it!
Rubio reportedly has no plans to change the footage or swap out the commercial, which is inneresting, but we guess when you've already sunk a bunch of money into footage and just want to get something out there… you make do.
Maybe if they cram a (North) in the middle of that sentence…
The brunette shared a sweet photo with her former flame and penned a heartbreaking caption in his memory.
The late sports star's longtime love reflected on their time together, writing:
"My deepest love goes out to those who saw jose as more than an athlete, but as a passionate, raw human being. The heart break is unbearable. There was so much more to him than anyone could even begin to understand. I'm fortunate enough to have loved and be loved by jose, and his family, for over 3 crazy beautiful years."
Miz Mendoza admitted she will always love the 24-year-old, and told her followers to never take moments with their loved ones for granted, adding:
