With campaigning for the next US presidential election well and truly underway, a joke candidate called Deez Nuts has entered the race, and he’s unintentionally bringing Melbourne band Deez Nuts along with him.
Mr Nuts’ campaign is giving the hardcore outfit of the same name an insight into what it would be like if they collectively ran for US President.
As Rolling Stone reports, an independent presidential candidate by the name of Deez Nuts is making waves in a number of states — probably due to the genius idea of running as “Deez Nuts” in the first place.
Deez Nuts, who says his real name is Brady Olson, is reportedly a 15-year-old high school student who is making his legal-by-law run for the White House. Because his campaign has (of course) gone viral, the band Deez Nuts have jokingly thrown their hats into the ring as well.
Posting news of Deez Nuts’ presidential campaign to Facebook (below), the band Deez Nuts said, “So this is happening… Who are you going to vote for?”
Taking to Twitter, the band also posted, “Not sure how four of us can be president simultaneously, but when elected think of all the ill shit we can legalize. gonna be lit.”
The Deez Nuts fan-base has since posted to the band’s Facebook page things like, “Vote Deez Nuts” t-shirts, campaign banners and photos and videos (below) of American news channels discussing Deez Nuts’ current (and surprisingly strong) polling statistics.

Elsewhere in the 2016 US Presidential campaign, a Louisville resident named Limberbutt McCubbins has also filed to run for POTUS. Only thing is, as NPR notes — Limberbutt McCubbins is a cat.
God Bless America.
Not sure how four of us can be president simultaneously, but when elected think of all the ill shit we can legalize. gonna be lit.
