This is just a very good GIF of Mitt Romney ironing a tux while wearing it

Greg Whiteley, a documentarian whose previous films explore high school debate and the life of New York Dolls member Arthur Kane, has been following the Romney family since Mitt was first pondering a presidential run in late 2006. After seven years of filming, Whiteley, a longtime family friend of the Romney’s, is finally releasing the Mitt, his documentary about the 2008 and 2012 Romney campaigns.

You can see the full trailer here but if you’re short on time, the above, amazing GIF of Romney ironing a tux while wearing it will have to suffice. Thanks to Ethan Klapper for the idea (though the above, bigger GIF is my creation).

See Sean Sullivan’s post at The Fix for more on Mitt the documentary, which premieres on Netflix January 24.
