I hope Ned Lamont didn't pay too much for his Kos commercial

I finally got around to seeing Kos' commercial for the campaign of goofy Ned Lamont and I have to admit that it's a comedy classic. First, they've got ole Ned all painted up with a ton of makeup including a fake suntan so strong that he looks like an Oompa Loompa. Then they park him on a floral print sofa where he looks like a deer in the headlights while Kos does a peeping tom routine outside the window.

Then to finish it off, Kos storms in with a crew of wingnuts who start capering around Ned like the denizens of the monkey house at the zoo. That part is particularly unfortunate given Kos' physical attributes and general demeanor.
Kos: separated at birth?

We know that Kos will do anything for money, but I'm beginning to suspect that he's really planning to give up politics and start doing comedy using Lamont campaign bucks as seed money.
