Fordtacular Spectacular! Cdn Animator’s Rob Ford Parody Sparks Bidding War

There are some who would say Rob Ford is already animated enough, but the embattled Toronto Mayor will soon be actually animated thanks to a new stop-motion parody that’s reportedly so funny it’s already sparked a bidding war.

Created by Canada’s Cuppa Coffee Studios, the animated spoof is described by The Hollywood Reporter as featuring a “blimp-like politician facing a media circus at Toronto City Hall as his scandal explodes,”; and has caught the interest of several Canadian and U.S. buyers.

“The film hilariously lampoons the trials and tribulations of a danger-prone Rob Ford and the tenacity of the improbable, unstoppable mayor to keep bouncing back,”; Cuppa Coffee president Adam Shaheen told THR.

Shaheen added that the studio is currently weighing offers to determine whether the 90-second animated parody — titled Fordtacular Spectacular! — will air on U.S. or Canadian TV before going online.

Cuppa Coffee Studios has extended an invitation to Ford to visit the Toronto-based animation studio, but Shaheen says the Mayor’s Office has yet to respond.
