These days it’s not enough to simply tell students there’s a snow day, give a plain old weather report, or just slap together a few glitter-soaked posters and run for high school office. It’s necessary to create a culturally relevant parody to get your message to the masses, and no one understands this better than high school class presidential hopeful Joel Werenich.
Joel is a student at Martingrove Collegiate Institute, located on Winterton Drive in Toronto. So he created ‘The Wolf of Winterton’ to show his classmates that he’s serious about running his school.
Joel is an enterprising young man, with a Facebook page for his campaign. There are 197 fans, and Joel’s constituents have taken to the page to ask important questions like “Joel. If I vote for you… Will you donate to a sperm bank in the near future?” and “If elected, will you devote resources to finding my catfish?” These are important questions.
He’s also created a bunch of inspired posters with a simple format and typeface, which allows his message to speak for itself.
We’re still undecided on how we’re going to vote. Joel: You didn’t mention in your video if, as president, you’d put vending machines in the cafeteria.
Please let us know. See you at the polls!
