Keeping Austin Weird at SXSW: Presidential Candidate Vermin Supreme on Congress Ave [VIDEO]
You just never know who you’ll see walking around Austin during SXSW. We found presidential candidate and pony purveyor Vermin Supreme wandering down (where else?) South Congress Ave.
If he was serious about politics, Vermin was on the wrong side of the Colorado River (the Texas State Capitol is north of it). With its hippies, hipsters and head shops, South Congress is a VERY different story. But if there was ever a man who fit right in with the neighborhood Austonians call “SoCo“, that man is Vermin Supreme!
He might want to work on his Secret Service detail, though. Those guys looked a little passive. (New Hampshire photo: Win McNamee/Getty Images)
