The man who communicated with legions of rock fans through a circus-like stageshow—featuring massive pyrotechnics displays, scantily clad women, a dwarf and gibberish lyrics like “Bawitdaba da bang da bang diggy diggy diggy”—will now be running for political office.

The website simply reads “Are You Scared?” It features a horizontal image of the artist wearing a fedora and shades, opposite what appears to be a taxidermied deer.

The site also features a number of campaign slogans like “You Never Met a Politician Quite Like Me,” “In Rock We Trust,” “Pimp the Nation,” “Party to the People,” and “Welcome to the Party.”

Three months ago, Rock was pictured along with Sarah Palin and Ted Nugent, at a meet-and-greet in the White House, where the trio met with President Trump in the Oval Office.
