It's never too late to shake up the presidential race, and Waka Flocka Flame is ready to do just that. After first announcing his presidential run midway through last year, Flocka officially launched his candidacy in a new video. His running mate? None other than the Nature Boy himself, Ric Flair.

After clearing up that he was "forced to leverage bureaucratic loopholes just like Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton" in order to get around the U.S. Constitution's 35-year age requirement, Flocka takes a moment to introduce everyone to Ric Flair. Flanked by two women, Flair proceeds to go on a minute-long rant in semi-intelligible English about how him and Waka plan to fix the country. Apparently, it all has something to do with their slogan: "make America woooooo again." Waka looks visibly concerned in the video, not unlike the look most Republicans probably had when they realized their party nominated Donald Trump to be the president.

The whole video seems to be the work of Budweiser, with its cans forming a flag in the background. At the end, the running mates toast with Bud Lights. We can only hope that the company is willing to put its money where its mouth is and bankroll the Flame Flair Super PAC to really get the campaign off the ground. Barring that, at least the video made us dream of a presidential candidate that's actually inspiring. Maybe in 2020.
