In a rare on-camera interview with an Iowa TV station, the young man behind Deez Nuts professed his appreciation for Canada's multi-party politics.

He said his independent candidacy will "hopefully pave the way for more than a two-party system."

"Canada, they had a debate for their prime minister elections and they had a four-party debate."

Deez Nuts&#x27; real name is Brady Olson and he&#x27;s a 15-year-old teen from a small town in Iowa. He registered his candidacy in North Carolina and has been making people giggle as very serious broadcasters utter &quot;Deez Nuts&quot; on television ever since.

Deez Nuts' real name is Brady Olson and he's a 15-year-old teen from a small town in Iowa. He registered his candidacy in North Carolina and has been making people giggle as very serious broadcasters utter "Deez Nuts" on television ever since.

As a high school sophomore, Deez Nuts is not actually legally allowed to become president. But let's not let the ~rules~ ruin this.

Deez Nuts received 9% support in North Carolina in a recent poll. People love Deez Nuts.

“Joke or not, Deez Nuts takes his campaign seriously," said KTIV's Sam Curtis. He's launched a website with his platform and t-shirts featuring a delightful slogan.

About to start the new school year, Deez Nuts said he "doesn't want this to be a distraction."

"It begs the question, is there a first lady?" asked host Robert Lowe, even if it absolutely does not.

"At this time he says no," replied Curtis.
