The Incredible Hulk interviews a local candidate. Okay, it's Lou Ferrigno, who played the Hulk, talking to San Luis Obispo County Sheriff candidate Ian Parkinson, which a member of his staff recorded and thought would be good for his campaign.

Ferigno has a home in SLO, and really is a Sheriff's Reserve Deputy in L.A. County (where they like to deputize celebrities). Parkinson has had some run-ins with local media and has avoided debating his opponent, so this scene of comic-book political theater got not-so-good reviews. Still, it's one reason I love this area. That, and we have a better Bubblegum Alley than Seattle.

  • It's not easy being green. Well somebody had to say it..
  • ...especially when the guy who recorded the video has to adjust the color balance. Fortunately, under normal light, the candidate was nearly the same shade of green.
