With the US heading for the polls this November to decide whether to give Obama another four years or if Mitt Romney can swoop into the Whit House. However Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis are hoping we’re gonna be interested in a slightly different political campaign. In The Campaign, when long-term congressman Cam Brady (Will Ferrell) commits a major public gaffe before an upcoming election, a pair of ultra-wealthy CEOs plot to put up a rival candidate and gain influence over their North Carolina district. Their man: naive Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis), director of the local Tourism Center. At first, Marty appears to be the unlikeliest possible choice but, with the help of his new benefactors’ support, a cutthroat campaign manager and his family’s political connections, he soon becomes a contender who gives the charismatic Cam plenty to worry about. Now we get to see their political ads and see what they stand for, ahead on the film’s release in September.
