Fenty 420 Ad WTF?

I just had two three comments show up in my email, they’re from “Carmelita Lopez” whose address goes back to an ESPN.com address (first WTF?), and they’re posting a YouTube video in the comments:

It’s a re-dub of a 30-second spot that Fenty put up on his site, and offers, an, um, different view of Adrian Fenty. What’s up with the re-dub? Well, they’re saying that because the original ad on the fenty webpage is titled Fenty420.swf he must clearly be a pothead and down with drugs instead of beating a path to all the neighbors doors.

So. Is this:

1) Linda Cropp’s Revenge?

2) The work of some clever blogger?

3) The work of some person who really needs help?

4) An entertaining way to pass the time?

I dunno, you tell me.

    Dude, that’s hilarious! I mean, please, now that Marion “the crackhead” Barry is endorsing Fenty… it just seems all the more appropriate.

    Maybe Fenty’s just a Rob Van Dam fan.

    I saw something in Wonkette the other day that Fenty wanted DC to “get lifted”. Have you seen that post? That must be what this is about. Why would Fenty call his political commercial 420? Thats sooooooo overt.

    I don’t want to mention a certain nutcase, but Carmelita Lopez is obviously just another pseudonym of said nutcase. This is backed up by the fact that Ms. Lopez has shown up just the other day within minutes of the aforementioned in the comments section of the dcist blog.

    With that in mind, do you think it’s Fenty doing the doob or Ms. Lopez not taking her lithium?

    Wow, there is a CAPS LOCK theme in every single one of these commenters names. Just a coincidence or do I see the mark of astroturf?
