Yep, Herman is still around

Former presidential contender Herman Cain is still making ads, and the latest ones are weird—to say the least. In the video released today—which Business Insider calls "crazy"—a rabbit is launched out of a cannon and then shot in mid-air as a little girl says, "This is small business. This is small business under the current tax code. Any questions?"

Text under the video reassures viewers that "the rabbit is fine but our current tax code is killing small business!" Politico notes. The video follows a similarly disturbing ad involving a floundering goldfish. Oddly, the goldfish video is still live, but the rabbit one now displays the following message: "This video has been removed as a violation of YouTube's policy against spams, scams, and commercially deceptive content."
