Mayor Rob Ford on MMVA

A few weeks ago Mayor Rob Ford took a secret trip to Burlington for a film shoot.

Staff in his office were tight-lipped at the time about the exact details of the event – until last night. Turns out Ford filmed a quick cameo for the opening credits of this year’s Much Music Video Awards.

You can watch the cameo here.

In a blink and you miss it appearance about 10 minutes into the show, Ford is out of his characteristic suit and tie and in a backyard wearing a red apron and grilling on a barbecue. Ford ends up lifting the bbq lid and then waving off a flurry of pink smoke before the credits roll on.

Just goes to show you never know where this mayor will turn up.

    Thank goodness, it was only “pink smoke” from the barbecue as Mayor Ford opened the lid……..it could have been much worse had we elected the alternative “Smitherman”, and deeper in debt.
    The smoke cloud could have encircled all of the City of Toronto, and the cities accounting showing more black then red, maybe pink……?? After all, are currency is “loonie”, “toonies”, and the next
    currency may be called “Donald Duck”??
