‘The Campaign’ Clip Features Some Hilariously Dark (and NSFW) Family Secrets

The Campaign
Warner Bros.

We’re a little over two weeks away from the release of the new comedy ‘The Campaign,’ starring Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis as midwestern political rivals. In this new clip, the gentlemen sit down to dinner and ask their family to reveal any secrets that might get them in trouble during their campaign — the results are hilarious.

Will Ferrell stars as Cam Brady, a politician who has ran unopposed for many years until Marty Huggins (Galifianakis) announces his plans to run for the same position. Brady appears to be similar to Ferrell’s infamous George W. Bush impressions, while Huggins is almost exactly identical to Galifianakis’ awesome Seth Galifianakis character, which he’s used previously in his stand-up routines.

The clip below, courtesy of Digital Spy, features both men asking their families to reveal any secrets that might hurt their political image, should they ever become public. Some of this stuff is familiar from the trailers, like Huggins’ son’s admission of sticking a firefly in his butt to make his farts glow (it’s so crass, but totally effective), but the new stuff we get is equally pleasing — Huggins’ wife admitting that she masturbates to Drew Carey every morning while watching ‘The Price is Right,’ and Brady’s unwelcome curiosity about his son’s pubic hair. Perhaps the funniest bit is Galifianakis’ facial expressions as his family unloads some unsavory information.

That baby-punching bit is unfortunately present in the clip as well — an element the film seems to be leaning on a little too heavily, which is worrisome.

‘The Campaign’ is directed by Jay Roach (‘Austin Powers’) and hits theaters August 10.
