Hick Town: Hickenlooper's cousin filming documentary about Denver mayor

It has the trappings of a standard-issue get-out-the-vote video, but the above clip is just a sign of more to come. The video, which shows Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper introducing and chatting with Barack Obama, apparently was culled from footage shot by the mayor's cousin George Hickenlooper, a documentary filmmaker who's making a movie about the mayor.

"In a moment of weakness, I let my cousin George — one of the greatest documentary filmmakers in America — cajole me into letting him film a documentary that would allow people to see close up the life of a big-city mayor," the mayor told the Rocky Mountain News. "It's more about perspiration than aspiration."
