Write-in candidate's ad includes footage of crimes in progress! Gadzooks!

Tiffany Brown faces an uphill battle if she wants to live up to her Twitter handle and become Atlanta's next mayor.

As a write-in candidate, the Spelman College grad — whose 2005 mayoral campaign was, you guessed it, unsuccessful — won't have the benefit of having her name on the ballot. That poses a problem for voters who'd like to vote for Brown, but might not remember how to spell her name. "Is it Tiffany with an 'i?'" "Brown with a 'q?'" These are very real questions millions of Americans ask themselves each day.

So like other candidates, Brown's produced a commercial to raise her profile among voters. The spot will be shown on such cable channels as Bravo, the Food Network and ESPN2 until Nov. 3.

The ad contains LIVE SHOCKING FOOTAGE of crimes in progress, including a German DJ from the 1990s snatching someone's purse as they get into their car. I, for one, am shocked that a cameraman would sit in garages and at local ATMs and wait for crimes to occur. Ms. Brown, you must report these acts to the appropriate authorities at once!
