The new ad from Spirit Airlines.   (Spirit Airlines)

(Newser) – You can't say Rob Ford didn't have this coming: Spirit Airlines of Florida has a new ad that pokes fun at the Toronto mayor's troubles, reports the Toronto Star. "We're not smoking crack," the ad reads, before pushing a $29.90 fare to the Toronto area. The ad doesn't mention the mayor by name, but it includes a silhouette of a very Rob-Ford-like individual. And then there's the red word "record" in the right corner, a dig at Ford's infamous crack-smoking video. (Toronto's city council today voted to curtail Ford's power.)

"We're not smoking crack," the ad reads, before pushing a $29.90 fare to the Toronto area.” Yeah, but the long lines people have to endure just to get on your plane, probably causes a lot of them to start smoking crack.
