Herman Cain’s campaign is not the only one with a new click-worthy internet ad out: San Franciscans for Jobs and Good Government released a memorable ad Tuesday morning supporting interim San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee – starring Oakland native M.C. Hammer. The ad touts Lee, who took over after former Mayor Gavin Newsom became lieutenant governor, as “2 Legit 2 Quit” – a “remixed” version of the song for which features prominently, along with Hammer himself.
It also features cameos from a handful of other Bay Area celebrities – such as Will.i.am, San Francisco Giants pitcher Brian Wilson, Google’s Marissa Mayer, and Twitter co-founder Biz Stone. In a Tuesday morning Tweet, Hammer said he was “bringing back a classic!” in honor of Lee, San Francisco’s first Asian American mayor.
