'Rob Ford Crack Remix' was posted on YouTube
early Wednesday by Steve Porter
, a top US-based DJ and producer. It features clips of Mayor Ford admitting
he smoked crack cocaine while in a "drunken stupor" and is set to the trappy tune of Jay Z's hit "Tom Ford."
When asked why he decided to produce such a video, Porter, who was ranked #2 on DJ Times'
"America's Best DJ" list in 2009, told Digital Journal that "crack smoking mayors don't come around that often."
"The Rob Ford/Tom Ford mashup just seemed like the perfect low-hanging fruit," Porter added.
This isn't Porter's first foray into video remixing. "Rap Chop,"
his re-imagination of the once-ubiquitous "Slap Chop"
TV infomercial, has been viewed more than 14.6 million times on YouTube.
