Cromoli brothers continue their campaign in Nelson



The pair are campaigning to become SUPREME LEADER of the entire world.

The Cromoli brothers continue their campaign for supreme leader tonight at the Scout Hall in Nelson.

Forget the provincial legislature, the Cromoli brothers have their sights set higher than the other political hopefuls whose names are popping up on lawn signs for this election season.

The pair are campaigning to become SUPREME LEADER of the entire world. As their campaign stops at Nelson’s Scout Hall tonight and tomorrow evening, they will reveal their platform and discuss, with the help of a ukulele and various other small hand-held instruments, what makes them the right choice to bring our entire world into a more peaceful, happier, and brighter future with less human suffering and cholesterol.

The characters, written and performed by Nelson cultural ambassador Lucas Myers and friends, were last seen in these parts during the height of the US presidential campaign (unfortunately for the Cromoli brothers it was also Thanksgiving weekend, which may have impacted their audience numbers at the Capitol Theatre). Ever hopeful for your vote, the pair is back in Nelson — and rumour has it you’ll be able to finally meet Hasbro, the brother who was somewhat elusive the last time they were here.

“Hasbro always seems to be missing, but I can confirm he will actually show up,” says Myers who’s managed to fall into the role of press secretary for his candidates.

He says the Cromoli brothers have made some adjustments to their campaign platform since their last time in Nelson. They have a new “No Assholes, Please” policy and have clarified their stance on a few other things.

But supporters will be glad to note they still have a “What Would David Bowie Do” policy for how they deal with conflict. And they aren’t afraid to address the tough issues like the economy.

“They do address real issues and are offering an option — I don’t know if it’s a viable option — but they’re offering an option for how things could be run.”

The CROMOLI 4 SUPREME LEADER campaign stops at Nelson’s Scout Hall on Friday and Saturday, April 26 and 27 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 at the door or in advance at The Music Store.
