Canadian ad agency Zulu Alpha Kilo pitches for Clinton and Trump with spoof ad

With the Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump campaigns almost running at full pelt ahead of the November presidential election, a cheeky Canadian ad agency reckons it has what it takes to help either – or both – campaigns.

Toronto-based creative agency Zulu Alpha Kilo released a spoof ad featuring actor Doug Murray as fictional company chief executive Frank Zulu, keen to chase some “juicy US business”.

Not content to settle for "small time" P&G or Nike, however, and demanding his interns stop playing Pokemon Go, Zulu admits the agency knows nothing about US politics... although at least he is willing to read a book.

Offering walls to Trump and firewalls to Clinton, the slot shows how the agency possesses a sense of humor and is not above self-effacement.

The creative agency specialises in parody and keeps an extensive log of it's comic wit on its website.
