Puppymonkeybaby, Andy Harris Style

As if Mountain Dew’s Puppymonkeybaby commercial during Super Bowl 50 didn’t haunt us enough, a pro-marijuana group has adapted it with the likeness of Rep. Andy Harris, R-Md., to make a political point.  

“We thought it was something young people would get,” Adam Eidinger, chairman of the pro-cannabis DCMJ group, told HOH. Harris’ character is PoopyMonkeyBaby, which DCMJ created especially for the lawmaker who led the charge to block the relaxing of marijuana laws in the District, despite an initiative voters approved in 2014 and that went into effect in February 2015. The punch line: “He always dances after he poops on D.C. voters.” DCMJ thought Harris' birthday was the perfect time to roll the character out.
