We, and many other media outlets, thought mayoral candidate Jeff Wagner's half-naked "Wake Up Minneapolis" spot was pretty damn clever and sorta funny too.

But the Washington Post's Chris Cillizza isn't a fan. In fact, he named it his "worst ad of 2013" on the Post's political blog.

Cillizza succinctly characterizes the spot as "Amazing(ly) bad" and blasts Wagner for ranting nonsensically during his "weird" lakeside promo.

In related news, Wagner recently got in touch with us to let us know he's planning to run for governor next year. So love 'em or hate 'em, look forward to more spots where Wagner is half naked, jerking off, or involved in some other shenanigans.
