Zach Galifianakis and Will Ferrell get the partisan started in new ads for 'The Campaign' -- VIDEO

Two new spots were just released for Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis’s upcoming comedy The Campaign. Ferrell plays unctuous Congressman Cam Brady, who appears to have a better grip on his political groupies than the English language. His opponent Marty Huggins (Galifianakis) simply wants to “give Washington a Huggins” — not to mention a thorough cleaning because “it is a mess!”

The ads send up all the clichés of real-world political ads and tweak them for maximum comedy. Who doesn’t like a good Saddam Hussein joke or two? There are also jabs at Communists and out-of-touch fat cats, plus a blink-and-you’ll-miss-him shot of Jack McBrayer (a.k.a. Kenneth from 30 Rock). Start educating yourself on the candidates below.

The Campaign opens Aug. 10.
