Some are just shocking, some are weird and others might actually win some votes. Of all the campaign videos released this week, here are some of our favorites here at The Daily Caller:

Linda McMahon’s kickin’ it up

When you’re a U.S. Senate candidate, and there’s footage of you in a WWE ring kicking a man in the area most men hope to never be kicked, don’t be surprised when the footage is used against you — and repeated over and over again. Check out this attack video against former WWE CEO and Connecticut Republican Linda McMahon made by GOP Senate primary rival Peter Schiff.

“Better Bail Faster, Billy”

The latest from Vermont Senate candidate Len Britton (remember Britton’s “Better get a paper route, Billy” video?) shows government agents in black suits filling up the lifeboat of two kids with water buckets named “stimulus” and “pork.”

Pulling a monster truck on his back

Joel Demos is running against Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, a Democrat. The Republican says he wants to “help restore some sanity to Washington,” and in his campaign video, he pulls a monster truck with chains draped over his back.

NRSC makes a mafia commercial
The National Republican Senatorial Committee released a video attacking Illinois Senate candidate Alexi Giannoulias, complete with an Al Capone-like voiceover, accusing him of being a Chicago mobster.

Another video brought to you by the producer of ‘Mike, Mike, Miiiiiikkkkee Weinsten’

Yes, we know. This isn’t exactly a political campaign video. But do you remember a past video of the week straight from the Saved by the Bell days for Florida state Rep. Mike Weinstein? Well his son is back with another sing-along, this time to warn kids to “say no” to creepy old men.
