New Santorum Ad More Like a Horror Film
'Welcome to Obamaville' is a pretty darn spooky 65 seconds

(Newser) – An ominous narrator. A tree that seems to have evil eyes. Black crows that caw menacingly. It seems like the stuff of a horror-flick preview ... but it's actually a Rick Santorum ad. "Welcome to Obamaville" is getting plenty of attention. Why? It's "more than a town," warns the narrator: It's "a cautionary tale" that predicts what America will be like in 2014 under Obama. According to scenes from the commercial, it will mean: $91 tanks of gas, people will hold gas nozzles to their heads like guns, and hospital hallways will be as creepy as Death Row corridors.

One of the bits getting the most attention: Ahmadinejad's face gets replaced by Barack Obama's, right as that spooky narrator speaks of a "sworn American enemy." Quips Gawker, "Hey, maybe with enough funding we'll get the feature-length version."
