In a move of marketing genius, Hillary Clinton airs on her website and advertisement that is a spoof on the final episode of “The Sopranos,” reports the Associated Press.
In the last episode of the Sopranos, Tony and Carmela are sitting in a diner and Tony plays on the jukebox the Journey song, “Don’t Stop Believin’.” Anthony Jr. walks in and the family sits together waiting for Meadow to arrive. Right as she is getting ready to walk in, the screen cuts to black, leaving an audience in suspense about the fate of the family.
In Clinton’s spoof, she is sitting in a diner in Mount Kisco, N.Y., near her home in Chappaqua, with Bill, and there is a bowl of carrots set on the table by the server. Bill asks, “No onion rings?” (as the Soprano family shared in their last scene) and Hillary comments, “I’m looking out for you.” She is flipping through the jukebox in an attempt to find a campaign song. When Bill asks her what song she has settled on for her campaign, and comments “My money’s on Smashmouth,” the screen goes to black as she is getting ready to tell him what it is.
The actor who played the New York mob boss Johnny “Sack” Sacramoni, Vince Curatola, walks by the Clintons and gives a bit of a malicious look to the pair.
The dialogue exchanged in the spoof is in part, as follows, as provided on Foxnews.com:
“Where’s Chelsea?” Senator Hillary Clinton asks. Outside a car tire hits the curb. “Parallel parking,” President Clinton replies.”How’s the campaign going?” he asks.”Well, like you always say, focus on the good times.””So what’s the winning song,” he presses.”You’ll see.””My money is on Smash Mouth,” he says. “Everybody in America wants to know how it’s going to end.””Ready?” Hillary asks.
But, the conclusion everyone is waiting for in this case is not a mystery. Hillary has chosen the Celine Dion song, “You and I” for her campaign song. There is a link on her site that allows the visitor to listen after having watched the video, which is also available on her site in its entirety.
See the video here.
Republics scoff at the choice, as Dion was born in Canada and as the song, “You and I,” was used by Air America in 2004.
