As if it weren't already apparent, Eric Cantor--or someone on his staff--has a thing for ginning up cheesy web videos. But while I too am astounded by the AFSCME and Aerosmith bits, for its combination of wonkery, inexplicable plot, and bad acting, nothing beats this 2007 gem, made when Cantor was leading the defense against higher taxes on private equity firms.
