Alaska Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ethan Berkowitz shot an ad that involved an earth mover dumping dirt on a television showing his opponent. As you can see in the first 30 seconds of this video, he was able to make his pitch while the machine dumped the dirt on the television beside him.
But as the outtake that follows the finished spot shows, it took more than one try for Berkowitz to pull it off. Check out the (rather serious) hit the candidate took while filming the ad at left.
Berkowitz emerged from the incident intact -- and, as you can see, is now using it to raise money for his campaign.
