The US Senate race is heating up in Pennsylvania, in what is sure to be a wild ride into November’s midterm elections. The current lieutenant governor of the state, John Fetterman, is running as a Democrat against the television personality and defender of pseudoscience, Dr. Mehmet Oz. And the whole thing is so wild that this week none other than Nicole.”snookiPolizzi from MTV The Jersey Shore got involved.
For those unfamiliar with Pennsylvania politics, Oz, a self-described conservative Republican who previously served on Trump’s President’s Council on Sports, Fitness and Nutrition, actually is not and has not lived in Pennsylvania, even though he is campaigning for senator. Fetterman, on the other hand, is a blue-collar worker who has lived in the state for most of his life and began his political career serving as mayor of the small industrial town of Braddock in western Pennsylvania.
Naturally, this makes for an exciting career, especially when you consider that Fetterman is an atypical politician, choosing to eschew formalities like business attire or living in the lieutenant governor’s mansion (he opened the property as a public swimming pool instead). and is campaigning on the platform to legalize marijuana, among other things. And Dr. Oz is… well, Dr. Oz.
Much of the crux of Fetterman’s attack ads has centered around the fact that Oz is a celebrity. So, in his latest coup, the 52-year-old enlisted Polizzi’s help in wishing Oz a shout out from Cameo, the website that allows celebrities to send personalized video messages to fans.
“Hello Dr. Oz,” Fetterman tweeted along with the video and a hand-waving emoji. “JERSEY loves you [and] I will not forget you!!!”
Hi Mehmet, I’m Nicole ‘Snooki’ and I’m from The Jersey ShoreI don’t know if you’ve seen it before,” Polizzi said in the video. “But basically I’m a disaster on a reality show and I’m enjoying life.”
“But I heard you moved from New Jersey to Pennsylvania to find a new job,” he continued. “And personally, I don’t know why anyone would want to leave New Jersey, because it’s like the best place in the world, and we’re all a mess, but I want to wish you the best of luck. I know you are far from home and in a new place, but Jersey will not forget you.”
And do not worry! Because you will be coming home to Jersey soon, this is only temporary,” Polizzi joked. “So good luck, you got this, and Jersey loves you!”
And this is how you make a campaign video, so extremely reasonable $300 price, we might add. Say what you want about Fetterman, but he’s a thrifty guy.
