Live-Blogging Joe Lhota’s Dance-Floor Roller-coaster Attack Ad

NEW YORK, NY - OCTOBER 15: New York City Democratic mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio, right, and Republican mayoral candidate Joe Lhota shake hands at the conclusion of their first televised debate at WABC/Channel 7 studios on October 15, 2013 in New York City.

Following the fear-mongering, assault-heavy nightmare scenario presented in “Can’t Go Back,” desperate Republican mayoral candidate Joe Lhota is back with a new video ad: a two-and-a-half-minute dance remix of the criticisms Bill de Blasio faced in the Democratic primary. It is … intense. We kept a diary throughout.

0:04: Oh my god, that’s loud.

0:14: Is this … dubstep?

0:24: Remember when everyone ganged up on Bill de Blasio? It didn’t work.

0:37: Remember Christine Quinn? Also didn’t work.

0:59: Yep, definitely dubstep.

1:09: *Pops a molly, dances wildly*

1:58: Water break.

2:01: Wait a second. Quinn, Bill Thompson, John Liu … have all since endorsed De Blasio.

2:30: Doesn’t matter — beat drop. WUBWUBWUBDRRRZZZ.

2:35: Headache.
