People are still gabbing about Eric Greitens' over-the-top campaign ad that aired last week, which introduced viewers to the former Navy SEAL's muscly arms and penchant for gun-related wordplay. 

The ad also featured an explosion, the apparent result of Greitens' "dead aim" — or, perhaps, the gubernatorial candidate simply raised his patriotism levels over 9000. 

Greitens, who is campaigning for Missouri governor, presents himself as an outsider to the game of politics and a face of integrity in a sea of corruption. That same self-righteousness, however, makes him the perfect target for parody.



Eric Christensen, host and producer of STL Up Late, demonstrates this to great effect in the video below:


His truck! Not his truck!
