Alice Cooper is gearing up for the 2020 presidential election in the only way he knows how—by running for president, something he has done satirically every four years since releasing the song “Elected” in 1972. This year, he has released a new “campaign” video for the classic track.
The video takes a lighthearted look at the process and positions Cooper as the best candidate. Running on the Wild Party ticket, Cooper’s campaign platform speaks volumes: “I can do nothing as well as they can do nothing.” The new video features call-backs to the original 1972 music video, in which Alice Cooper first announced his “candidacy” and the formation of the Wild Party.
