While he has become an international sensation for his ridiculous comments and behavior (most of which goes viral on the Internet), back home in Canada he is seen as a source of shame for many.
With Toronto's mayoral elections coming up in October this year, a hilarious fake campaign by a group called NoFordNation.com is calling for anyone to lead the city but a crack-smoking Ford.
Torontonians are divided over whether a mayor who is struggling with substance abuse issues and has frequently spent time at rehabilitation facilities should be leading them.
While a large majority wants a mayor that doesn't embarrass them, Ford is popular amongst the disenfranchised -- especially the African community who see him as a Robin Hood of the "hood."
Whatever the outcome may be on Oct. 27, Rob Ford has certainly provided the world with entertainment.
