VIDEO: watch a small child do Rob Ford’s crack denial
The video above, in which a nine-year-old uses the now-classic “I cannot comment on a video I have never seen or does not exist” excuse to avoid responsibility for a crack-related misdeed (the crack, in this case, being a literal crack in a glass pane), is equal parts adorable and disturbing. It’s the work of Ron Murphy, a director whose current projects include TV shows like Trailer Park Boys and Lost Girl. This particular piece, he says, was done pro bono, to call attention to Rob Ford’s not-so-family-friendly ways—and not on behalf of anyone’s mayoral campaign.
The actor in the clip is Tony Nappo, and the girl is his actual daughter, Ella. “The most disturbing thing is that Ford’s words and logic fit in her mouth way too well,” Murphy told us.
