Using their first movie's publicity budget, the Yes Men buy a used radio truck for $5000 and outfit it as a fake Bush campaign bus. They wrap it in Bush imagery and augment it with googly eyes, a deranged slogan, a roof-mounted "missile," a "pollution" generator (fog machine), retractable "oil rig" (the original antenna with oil-rig dressing) that launches streamers of "oil" (a CO2 gun), a big video screen with animatronic Bush, and a whole wardrobe of costumes, including an orangutan suit and cowboy with gas-nozzle sidearms. They intend to do a whole series of demented "campaign events" alongside the real campaign, but there's only one problem: no one can tell them where the real campaign is. The van is finally scrapped and the Yes Men go knock on doors like everyone else.
