Jerry Brown: 'The Most Interesting Man in California,' According to Ad

A new ad hit the Web late Wednesday: "When reporters interview him, they are known to get lost in his piercing brown eyes," a narrator intones. "He once balanced the state budget with only a stern look."

Another one of those hilarious Dos Equis commercials, right?

Nope. It's a spot for California gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brown. Click play below to watch:

The minute-long ad was paid for by the state Democratic Party -- which would seem to be very confident in its candidate's chances, judging from the levity of the material with only six days until the election.

A poll last week found Brown leading Republican Meg Whitman 47 to 40 percent.

The ad ends with a twist on the familiar beer tag line: "Some people don't always vote, but I do -- for Jerry Brown. Stay Jerry, my friends."

Our New Approach to Comments

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info.

what people dont remember he bankrupted Oakland and raised our taxes so high? So did his dad. I am so sick of the Left activist in Calfiornia, you cant even put out a yard sign for a republican anymore, the left will STEEL IT! I feel so bad for our state, all we do is take on more people on state unions and unions here and there. When are they going to tell them to take that job and shove it? or atleast say no mas take my dues for the elections.

Yea the reporters get lost in his piercing brown eyes,it must be their brains that are getting lost.Jerry Brown is a green energy guy who will help finish off the job market on the west coast.In Greece where they tried to base their economy on green energy,they destroyed their economy.For every job created making wind mills they lost two other jobs.California I hope the people there realize what they got in store for themselves if they elect Brown again.Maybe the first State to become bankrupt.Good luck left coast!!

Could you imagine 10 years ago where we would be today...same sex marriage, legalized pot, legal abortions...and this 'interesting man' climbs on board all these issues for votes. I think a person that stands up for whats right, for common sense, for morality, for family values is the 'most interesting man' and that wouldnt be Jerry Brown

If the people of California elect Jerry Brown to be their next governor, then they deserve everything they get. Listen up California, there will be no bailout from the Fedreal government! If you want a bailout, look south and ask Mexico.

Brown is an old hippie who fits into Ca. liberal agenda. The state is bankrupt, when the fed stop wasting money on them they will have to raise taxes or shut down the state. It is scare when you get what you ask for.
