New Jimmy McMillan Song Actually Kind of Catchy

Jimmy McMillan is running for mayor again, because Jimmy McMillan is always running for mayor, and always will be running for mayor, whether there is a mayoral election or not. As part of his campaign effort, McMillan has released a new song and music video on the topic of rent, which you may recall is an issue of utmost concern to him. Though sometimes amateurish, the video has a plot and actors and everything, and the song, when it finally begins, is actually kind of catchy. The climax comes when McMillan smashes his guitar against a tree for no particular reason, except for perhaps frustration with the city’s soaring rents.
