Today is "Scott Walker Finally Announces His Official Candidacy After Raising Money for Months While Pretending" Day. Bloomberg Politics is honoring that with this special video they created, mashing Walker's launch video up with the audio from The Dark Knight.

We watched the Conservative Crusader's video and couldn't help but notice that the imagery and soundtrack felt familiar. Almost as if it belonged in Gotham City.

So we took the audio from the trailer for The Dark Knight, and played it over the ad. We made only one edit, cutting out the middle 25 seconds from the Batman trailer, so that both the trailer's audio and the Walker video would end at the same time.

Watch to the end, because that's the best part.

Happy Scott Walker Is Now A Candidate Day!

Can you help us out?
