Jon Stewart pleaded with Toronto Mayor Rob Ford to resign after he finally admitted this week that, yes, he has smoked crack— and the reports of a video wherein he smoked crack, did, indeed exist. Since that episode of The Daily Show aired, things have only gotten worse for Ford. Today the Toronto Star published a video, wherein the mayor is seen totally drunk and screaming about wanting to murder some guy.

“I need fucking 10 minutes to make sure he’s dead,” Ford says. “I’m gonna kill that fucking guy. I’m telling you, it’s first-degree murder…I’ll rip his fucking throat out. I’ll poke his eyes out. . . . I’ll make sure that motherfucker’s dead.”

We should also note that he says the word, “brother,” a lot, which makes him look and sound a lot like Hulk Hogan. Watch the entire thing below.

Update: 8:18 pm ET — Ok, watch the entire thing here, since they just pulled it from YouTube.

After the video’s release, Ford had said he was “embarrassed” and extremely, extremely inebriated.” Earlier this week, Ford said he would not step down, despite many in Toronto’s government calling for his resignation. Even after this video’s publication, Ford hasn’t changed his mind.

    He sounds a lot like Hulk Hogan because he’s doing a Hulk Hogan impersonation.

    This tape was done around the same time he was set to do a joke arm wrestling match with Hulk Hogan.

    Not all of us take our “advice” from a liberal hack who need 14 writers to pen jokes for his hour long taped show.

    Whereas Rush Limbaugh does three hours, live, every day for 25 year, no writers from Harvard or otherwise.

    Just sayin.

      well,that makes sense. why didn’t he just explain that when he commented on the video– instead of saying, “yeah, i was drunk.”

      i believe that explanation. but why didn’t he just explain that was the case instead of saying, “Yeah, I was totally drunk.”

      I don’t really think the hulk hogan impression was why people might be calling for his resignation, might have had more to do with the whole public inebriation thing.

      Not all of us get thrown into a blind rage because someone mentions someone they don’t like is passively referenced in a news article about some drunken stooge.

      Just sayin.
