The Herman Cain Web video featuring his chief of staff Mark Block smoking a cigarette has been getting a lot of attention, but it’s not the only interesting one the campaign has produced.
Another Web video uploaded Aug. 25 titled, “He Carried Yellow Flowers,” features actor Nick Searcy on the set of a mock Western movie. The tagline for the video is, “There was a time in America when a man was a man, a horse was a horse, and a man on a horse was just a man on a horse... unless he carried Yellow Flowers.”
The ad seems to be an attempt to address Cain’s race. One actor mocks the yellow flowers Searcy is holding, to which he responds, “Why does it always have to be about color? What are you guys, liberals?”
“Card carrying,” the actor responds to Searcy, before spitting on his boot.
A fight scene then briefly begins before Searcy walks off set and says, “Looking cool and reading lines that somebody else wrote for me doesn’t make me a real tough guy any more than looking cool and reading lines off a teleprompter that somebody else wrote makes a community organizer a real leader. But Herman Cain is a real leader."
And, Cain has a music video that has gotten some play already.
Country music singer Gary Eaton performs in a Herman Cain music video released May 31,which includes appearances by Alveda King and "Joe, the Plumber," saying they were going to “Raise some Cain.”
The video stresses Cain’s Tea Party ties and businessman background, with constant encouragement for people to get on the “Cain Train.”
Eaton sings, “He’s a true, son of the South, born and raised the American way. Well, his dad left the farm with just the clothes on his back, but he raised some Cain, and he never looked back. Herman Cain, ohhhhhh Herman Cain.”
The music is interspersed with dialogue from Cain, who at one points says, “My great, great grandparents were slaves and now I’m running for president of the United States of America. Is this a great country or what?”
And Cain says, "To all the people who think the Tea Party is a racist organization, eat your words."
In "Joe, the Plumber’s" cameo, he looks into the camera and says, “Hey Obama, you’re going to raise a billion dollars? Well we’re going to raise some Cain, brother.”
