Halifax Mayor Mike Savage is basically Brad Pitt

If you’re from Toronto, you may just want to stop reading here if you can’t handle mayoral jealousy.

Last week, we compared Rob Ford to Calgary mayor Naheed Nenshi, with Nenshi’s general aptitude for coolness casting a depressing contrast.

Now the east coast is chiming in with a hip mayor who, just to be clear, has never been accused of smoking crack on video.

Halifax Mayor Mike Savage starred in a video in which he points out his uncanny resemblance to actor Brad Pitt.

“You know what people often ask me, ‘what’s the toughest thing about being you?’ Is it the long hours? Is it chairing council? Is dealing with feral cats and chickens? Well, they’re tough, but the toughest thing is the constant comparisons to Brad Pitt,” Savage says in the video, as Toronto weeps.

“I know what you’re thinking, but the camera adds 10 pounds — and we’re using a bunch of cameras,” he also quips.

The video was made to encourage Halagonians to vote for their city in paint company Benjamin Moore’s Main Street Matters project. Pitt’s charity, Make It Right, is also involved. The top 20 winning cities and towns will get a three-block main street makeover. Other Canadian cities like Kamloops, B.C., Red Deer, Alta. and Ottawa are also in the running.

Watch Savage’s full pitch below.
