Brazilian presidential election: Serra uses images of Lula on TV
Ad says Serra and Lula are "two men with history '. Toucan campaign also uses the president in jingle.

After using Lula's name in one of his jingles, the main opposition candidate José Serra (PSDB) showed the president in his official broadcast this Thursday (19) night, with images of the candidate next to Lula.

The images, in which Lula and Serra hug, were exhibited in the first scene of the program, with the narration "Serra and Lula, two men with history, two leaders with experience."

The toucan program also mentions Lula's Workers' Party candidate, Dilma Rousseff, saying Serra is "the experience Dilma lacks."

Then the program goes on to enumerate Serra's records in public health in his efforts in the Ministry of Health, under Fernando Henrique Cardoso, and as governor of São Paulo.

Dilma had criticized Serra's first program for mentioning Lula in a jingle. The song says "When Lula da Silva leaves, it is Zé I want there."

"You can't try to pass for something you're not," said Dilma in criticism.

LOL WUT? Let me know if you've seen a similar situation before! I understand they don't want to attack Lula because of his approval ratings (80%) but that's too much. Serra also said people should overcome the fear to take risks, which is hilarious considering this and this.
