Jon Huntsman's strange new Motocross ad

GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman's campaign wants you to know that he is a Motocross rider in his spare time "to relax" -- and that he is apparently very, very cool. 

No surprise, this ad comes from Fred Davis, who made Christine O'Donnell's famous "I am not a witch" ad and Carly Fiorina's "Demon sheep" ad. (Which are, incidentally, my two favorite ads of the last campaign cycle.) 

A previous Davis ad for Huntsman (President Obama's former ambassador to China) also mentioned his former rock band, "Wizard." 

I appreciate Davis' effort, but anyone who's ever heard Huntsman speak will have trouble believing he's the cool, exciting candidate in the race. He could have ridden the motorcycle over a moat of alligators while guitar-soloing and still, by comparison, made Tim Pawlenty look like Steve McQueen
