We really wouldn't have been all that surprised if somebody did this for a Japanese politician -- those guys have been sucking up to video game and anime fans for years -- but Ron Paul?
We're not sure if this is just a fan video that happened be made by the Pokemon guy, or if this was an officially sanctioned advertisement. It's completely brilliant either way, though. Let's hope this is the beginning of a beautiful string of cross-promotions. We'd love to see a Ron Paul cameo in the next Pokemon.
