Brian Wilson, Ronnie Lott Make Cameos In San Francisco Mayoral Campaign Video

Two luminaries from the world of San Francisco professional sports issued their ringing endorsements for who they’ll be voting for in  the upcoming San Francisco mayoral election on Nov. 8. That’s right, it’s ex-San Francisco 49er (and NFL Hall of Famer) Ronnie Lott and San Francisco Giants oddball closer, Brian Wilson, letting their voices be heard. Oh, and did I mention said mayoral campaign video for candidate Ed Lee (who rocks an epic mustache, by the way) is a take on the MC Hammer classic, “2 Legit 2 Quit” and that MC Hammer himself makes a cameo in it as well? Weird, wild stuff.

But such an odd song to pick to use as a theme for a campaign for mayor, but oh well. And yes, I am aware of the fact that Hammer is still a much beloved personality in the Bay Area, but come on, we’re talking about “2 Legit to Quit” here. I am sure there were plenty of other musicians that have a connection to the great city of San Francisco who would have been honored to take part in the “Ed Lee for Mayor” movement. Huey Lewis & The News, perhaps. “Do You Believe In Lee?”, “The Power of Ed.” Really, the possibilities are endless given their extensive catalog. And crap, let’s face it: Huey and the boys could use some love these days. I guess the same could be said for Hammer.
