"Straight Outta" Kentucky politics

08/14/2015 08:00 PM

A new social media advertising campaign is sweeping the internet and scooping up at least one Kentucky politician in its path.

With the film “Straight Outta Compton” premiering in theater’s across the country on Friday, many Web-savvy users are creating their own “Straight Outta” memes using a free web based app.

One Kentucky politician, Republican agriculture commissioner candidate Ryan Quarles, introduced his own picture featuring him in front of a barn with a phrase reading, “Straight Outta the Barn.”

We decided to help Kentucky politicians with their own “Straight Outta” pictures in a segment that first aired Friday.
