SIMPLY THE BEST: Joke ticket wins Iceland elections with kick-ass campaign video

A joke ticket, formed six months ago by a comedian, the Best Party have won local elections in gloomy Iceland’s depressed capital Reykjavik pledging free towels at all swimming pools, a polar bear for the city zoo and a “drug-free parliament by 2020.”

Their campaign video was brilliant.

The BBC reports that – aside from the video – the party “benefited from voters’ loss of trust in government and the establishment in the wake of the country’s banking collapse in 2008.”
