Addams family makes a cameo in Argentine elections

Watch one of the more unusual campaign ads from Argentina's elections, featuring the Addams family, the Argentine president and Hugo Chavez.

Creepy and kooky, mysterious and spooky. And all together oozy.

The Addams family or the president of Argentina?

The campaign spot combines speeches by Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner with the Addams family theme song.

It mixes photos of Kirchner, her late husband and ex-president Nestor Kirchner, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and other political figures.

La Nacion calls it "bizarre." Watch above.

And here's the original theme song from the series (called "Los Locos Adams" in Spanish):
