Last week, The Omaha World-Herald ran an article on Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain's time running Godfather's Pizza that you probably did not read. On the newspaper's website, the article included a video of Cain performing a pizza-themed version of John Lennon's "Imagine" at a 1991 Omaha Press Club event. On Monday, The Daily Beast posted a shortened clip of the performance, and the video went viral — at least among political junkies.

Choice lines include "Imagine there's no pizza, I couldn't if I tried..." and "Imagine only burgers, it's frightening and sad..." Cheesy lyrics aside (pun intended), the guy can flat sing. As TPM points out, Cain has released a gospel album and he jammed with Mike Huckabee at the Ames Straw Poll.


The video has even inspired a hashtag on Twitter: #HermanCainPizzaJams
