Presidential candidate Herman Cain touts his 9-9-9 plan on the campaign trail, but his top adviser appears to be subtly suggesting a different slogan: "Smoke 'em if you got 'em."

The Cain campaign released a quirky web video Monday night featuring Cain's chief of staff and campaign manager, Mark Block.

Block says in the ad, "We need you to get involved, because together we can do this. We can take this country back."
