Myers Wants Out Of Anti-Obama Video

A small but amusing note from the McCain campaign, via Ben Smith: Turns out Mike Myers isn't on board with the McCain camp's use of his Wayne's World persona in its recent anti-Obama video, "Fan Club."

Writes McCain's Michael Goldfarb: "The ad features kids talking about how 'dreamy' Senator Obama is, how he brought a crowd to Taco Bell despite inclement weather, and how he is no less of an international superstar than U2 frontman Bono. Unfortunately, the final clip of Mike Myers and Dana Carvey doing their 'we're not worthy' bit from Wayne's World has spurred a celebrity backlash. Myers had his people call the campaign to demand that the video be removed from YouTube for copyright violation. Apparently, we are not, in fact, worthy."

Goldfarb uses Myers' response to play into the McCain campaign's portrayal of Obama as a celebrity. He writes that the reaction represents an example of "Obama's celebrity friends" fighting back on the candidate's behalf.
