It seems like most of the political ads on TV these days are focused on smearing the opponent.

Maybe that's why a light-hearted and self-deprecating ad from a Texas politician has gotten so much attention on the internet.

The one-minute video of Gerald Daugherty, a Republican who is seeking re-election as a Travis County Commissioner, and his wife has gone viral.

He's been getting plenty of praise from media including the Washington Post ('Please Re-elect Gerald' is the political ad we all needed') and CNN.
