Maybe the Portland motto should just be "The City the Works the Red Carpet."

Mayor Sam Adams, known nationally for playing the role of his own assistant on cable television, has recorded a promotional video for Portlandia, entreating the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences to bestow awards on Carrie Brownstein's local parody show. 

Or, in his words, "Put an Emmy on it." (Sorry. We just repeat what people say.)

So, on a scale of 1 to 10, how insufferable is this? We think it is alleviated somewhat by Adams' excellent line delivery on "Look It Up," so we'll call it a 6. Feel free to cast your vote in the comments.
