Tim Heidecker invites you to get on board the Cain Train

The Internet has spent the better part of the last 24 hours chortling over GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain’s bizarre campaign ad featuring his cigarette-smoking badass of a Chief Of Staff, Mark Block. You’d be forgiven for thinking that the strange video was a goof, something, oh, I don’t know, say Tim Heidecker might have produced. (The highest-rated comment on the video’s YouTube page? “When did Tim and Eric start making political campaign videos?”) Well, the original video is apparently real, but there is a goof video that’s even better and just happens to be made by one Tim Heidecker. What does it all mean? Probably nothing! But just try to get “Ride the Cain Train” out of your head…

In case you missed it, here's the original, official Cain video, which, granted, has some super-awesome smoking going on, but a severe dearth of Cain Train action.
