Kyle Keyser goes edgy in campaign commercial

With the edge you’d expect from Kyle Keyser, the anti-crime crusader and gay candidate for mayor released two videos touting him as the leader with one special interest — “the community.”

The first commerical introduces Keyser, while the other takes an edgier and more gritty approach with a play on the phrase “Atlanta has no hope. I don’t believe that we can make a change.” The clever videos are the work of photographer Caroline Smith and filmmaker Raegan Hodge.

Smith, a lesbian, is the photographic force behind the iconic image of a flooded Krog Tunnel in Cabbagtown that came to symbolize the widespread flooding in Atlanta late last month.

Keyser, by the way, elbowed out of most mayoral debates since he qualified, will make his first televised appearance with other candidates on Sunday. The Atlanta Press Club debate will air live and include Keyser and five other candidates: Lisa Borders, Peter Brownlowe, Mary Norwood, Kasim Reed and Jesse Spikes.
