Mayoral candidate Dave Bronson was subjected to a lengthy complaint by Forrest Dunbar over campaign finances, but took it all in stride in a new spoof video that appeared on Facebook on Tuesday.
In it, accompanied by soft music, Bronson says “thank you” to Dunbar, for publicizing Bronson’s campaign, leading to him raising over $14,000 overnight.
The spoof is a takeoff on comedian Jimmy Fallon’s skits, in which he signs thank you cards ironically. Fallon has written thank you notes to things like a light bulb he’s too lazy to replace, his F12 key on his computer, and microbreweries for making his alcoholism seem like a hobby. Fallon wrote such classics as, “Thank you, take-out restaurants who put two spoons and two forks in the bag, for being nice enough to assume that all this food I ordered is for two people.”
The Alaska Public Offices Commission will hold an initial hearing of Dunbar’s campaign complaints on Wednesday.
