The negative TV ads have been coming in fast and furious as the two mayoral candidates fight to win the top slot today.Our favorite so far have been the ads from the California Teachers Association supporting Antonio Villaraigosa by depicting a man's back as he runs through the woods dodging the beam of a flashlight as a voice over says "Been looking for Mayor Hahn? So have the 740,000 students in our Los Angeles schools."

The commercial didn't influence this LAist's vote, but it sure made us laugh.
