VIDEO: the trailer for a touching, hilarious (and entirely made-up) Rob Ford movie starring Chris Farley

Our current favourite of the many, many, many, many, many Rob Ford spoof videos circulating online? This fake trailer for Rob Ford: The Movie, a feel-good flick composed entirely of repurposed scenes from Chris Farley movies. Along with Farley as Ford, the pretend cast includes Rob Lowe as Ford’s (alleged) drug peddling buddy Alexander Lisi, and Robert De Niro as gruff Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair. Not bad choices—though we still think Sascha Baron Cohen would kill the role of Ford’s part-time driver.
