Strange camera angles, bad tilt-shift, just like original spot

(Newser) – First Jon Huntsman's daughters made a splash on Twitter, thanks to their tactical deployment of wit and snark. Now they're taking to YouTube, featuring a parody of the infamous "smoking man" video put out earlier in the week by Herman Cain's campaign manager, Mark Block, reports Raw Story. All the women sport big mustaches, like Block, and intone their lines with much seriousness, also like Block. But where Block said, "Tomorrow is one day closer to the White House," Liddy Huntsman deadpans, "Tomorrow is Friday, one day closer to the weekend."

And instead of Block's line, "If I didn't believe that, I wouldn't be here," family ties apparently nix such freedom: “Even if we didn’t believe that, we’d still have to be here,” says Abby Huntsman. And for the big finish? No, they don't puff a cigarette like Block did. But they do blow soap bubbles (very moodily, of course). For some choice snarking from the Huntsman daughters, check this out.
