Now this is just plain weird

U.S. Senate candidate pantomimes 5-year-old son during strange cable news interview

By Eric Pfeiffer | The Sideshow 7 hrs ago

Rhode Island Republican Barry Hinckley's U.S. Senate run got a boost this week when a cute campaign video featuring his 5-year-old son Hudson hit the web. But it was Barry and Hudson's bizarre follow-up interview with Fox News that may make the more lasting impression.

So, Fox News host Neil Cavuto had Barry and Hudson Hinckley on his show to discuss the ad. This is where things got very weird, very quickly. Throughout the video, Barry Hinckley can be seen reading something off-screen and mouthing the exact words his son Hudson is saying in response to Cavuto's questions. (The interview starts at the 1:30 mark in the video below.)

You have to see the video of the interview. Unbelievably odd.

1. Obviously a very bright kid with a talent for performing....

He was a natural in the commercial. It looks like the interview was rehearsed a few times, so dad knew what son should be saying and that's why he mouthed it.

2. But didn't he realize he was on tv too?

I know Republicans aren't the brightest but come on.

3. It's possible! LOL

I remember an interview with Will Smith from back when he was doing the show The Fresh Prince of Bellaire. He said he was so nervous during the first couple shows that he didn't just memorize his own lines, but the entire script! And he said you could catch him at times lip-synching his co-stars lines, and he didn't even know he was doing it at the time.
