It's not too far-fetched to say that today's political climate is a bit...testy. But as November elections creep closer, candidates are looking for new and intriguing ways to get their message out there without rubbing potential voters the wrong way. And that brings us to this...

Maine Senatorial Candidate Eric Brakey of Auburn decided to show the lighter side of his personality by releasing a music video. He calls it "Brakey Dancing" where Eric himself as well as several of his supports are seen dancing in Maine to the song "Can't Stop The Feeling" by Justin Timberlake.

(Enjoy it while you can, because there's a very good chance that when Justin Timberlake and his record company find out a Senate candidate is using the music, it'll probably be taken down.)

Should more candidates for public office think about doing "unconventional" ads for themselves? Or would you prefer elected officials focus on issues in their ads? Let us know on our Facebook page.
