McConnell Learns Duke is not, in fact, UK

by Ben Davis posted Mar 26 2014 7:03AM

When Mitch McConnell's campaign video came out entitled, "Rebuild," people were a little confused by the fact it contains a couple DUKE players celebrating instead of UK.  The shot of Duke players Jon Scheyer and Lance Thomas jumping in celebration comes at 1:09 of the video.

Here's the ad to enjoy...

At the end of the video Duke’s basketball team was shown celebrating instead of the University of Kentucky’s 2012 championship.

Oh Mitch.....

However, he expertly ducked the question...

FYI, McConnell's campaign spokeswoman, Allison Moore, said the error was made by a vendor and not the campaign itself and UK Athletics released a statement Tuesday evening addressing the issue:

"The University of Kentucky consulted with the NCAA earlier today regarding footage of Julius Randle in a Mitch McConnell advertisement. Although the use of the student-athlete’s image in the advertisement is not permissible, because it was done without the knowledge or permission of the university or the student-athlete, it is not an NCAA violation. The University of Kentucky has sent a cease and desist letter and will continue to take appropriate measures to ensure improper usage of a student-athlete’s name, image or likeness is prevented."

Oh and JIMMY FALLON made fun of it too!  HAHAHA
