IOWA – Bob Quast is running for an Iowa senate seat.

Like most politicians, Bob is using an ad to help voters get to know him a little better.

It starts out pretty normal, albeit a little cheesy.

But then things get a weird in the middle of the ad, as Quast suddenly threatens the man who killed his sister — while smiling broadly and brandishing a gun.

The upbeat music, the deadly weapons — suddenly his cheesy political ad looks more like a scene from “Reservoir Dogs.”

Quast says the ad is supposed to be a spoof.

Because nothing says funny like joking about your sister’s brutal murder!

That’s certainly one way to catch a voter’s attention….
