Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal’s campaign for president has been plugging non-stop its internal poll that shows Jindal’s support in Iowa on the rise. But in an email to reporters Thursday, Team Jindal made an unexpected reference, linking to a 7-second clip fromBill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure.
“A week ago, I wrote to y’all noting that something was afoot in Iowa because of the large and enthusiastic crowd sizes greeting Governor Jindal across the state,” Jindal campaign communications director Kyle Plotkin wrote. “Or as Ted ‘Theodore’ Logan put it best in the great American classic, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, ‘Strange things are afoot at the Circle-K.‘”
For those unfamiliar, the 1989 film (starring Keanu Reeves) is about two slacker teens from California who travel through the past in a payphone booth-turned-time-machine, picking up historical figures to help out with the duo’s high school presentation.
The internal Iowa poll touted by Team Jindal put him in a tie for fourth among the crowded field of Republican hopefuls. Jindal’s best performance in an independent poll is 4 percent in Monmouth University’s survey that was conducted July 16-19.
