(CNN) - A tweet written to promote a local law enforcement association's endorsement of California gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman inadvertently went viral because it featured a YouTube video of a cross-dressing Asian man rocking out to a pop song.
In a negligee, garters and thigh high stockings.
"SD Cnty Sheriff Assoc says @Whitman2010 http://twitter.com/Whitman2010 4 gov! RT: @Murphy4MegNews http://twitter.com/Murphy4MegNews: CA Cops get it: Jerry Brown is too soft on crime," Whitman campaign spokeswoman Sarah Pompei tweeted, along with the video.
Pompei on Tuesday saw the humor in the mistake, saying in a one-word statement to CNN: "Oopsie."
At the end of her original tweet was a bit.ly link that was supposed direct followers to a press release. Bit.ly is a common tool used to shorten long URL's into short ones that fit neatly into tweets, text messages and e-mails. So many of the links are assigned, however, that if a single character is removed or altered, the link redirects to an unrelated website.
Pompei's tweet was missing the last letter, and thus, instead of linking to the endorsement announcement, she linked to one of Hyunmo Kim's jam sessions.
After a gentle curtsey, a pop song begins and Kim starts dancing around the room as he plays the bass.
According to his YouTube profile page, most of which is in Korean, Kim "hopes to be the world's greatest stupid idiot bass player."
