Yo, here’s the latest news in the most exciting presidential race in history: ‘Deez Nutz,’ a fake candidate who’s polling at more than nine percent in North Carolina is a 15-year-old Iowan who’s just out here having a good time.
According to The Daily Beast, the high-schooler is named Brady Olson and he decided to run when he heard that a cat with an even more ridiculous name was running for office.
“When I heard about the Limberbutt McCubbins story, I realized I could,” Olson tells The Daily Beast.
Sadly, neither the cat nor the sophomore will be running any branch of the government anytime soon, but The Daily Beast has uncovered an even more important revelation. Olson, who’s hoping for a Nutz/McCubbins ticket, isn’t the only ‘Deez Nutz’ in America.
Dozens of real Deez Nutses or Deez Nutzes do live as citizens in the United States of America with legally changed names, from Phoenix, Arizona, to West Hartford, Connecticut, from sea to shining sea…
Maybe these brave men and women would like to run? It would be helpful, considering that if Olson continues receiving support he’s going to have to reveal his real name on the ballot. And it looks like he might get there, even if he won’t be eligible to win. Even though he’s now got his first major celebrity endorsement.
The Daily Beast reports that if Olson can’t secure McCubbins as his VP, Warren G, the artist who made the term ‘Deez Nuts’ famous is willing to run with him as his VP.
“I was blown away to see something I did as a skit on there. It tripped me out. It really, really, really was a trip,” he says. “And to know that it came from a 15-year-old kid who’s a fan…”
“If he wanted me to, I’d ride with him until the wheels fall off,” he says. “Who better than me? I’m ready. Let’s go.”
