July 12th 2016 Kettering, OH, Fraze Pavilion - Official announcement of the "Vote Alice Cooper for President/Prime Minister", with a re-release of 'Elected' ('Alice Does Alice' version). The campaign was basically just a promotional thing, not a serious attempt to run. Special web pages were set up for both the UK and US promotions but when it turned out the "new" version of 'Elected" was in fact the same one fans already had from 'Alice Does Alice' interest kinda died out, especially in the light of the ongoing concerns over Joe Perry's health.

Press Release excerpt: "Alice Cooper is tired of the rhetoric – the mudslinging – the media frenzy. Keeping his snake in his cage and the guillotine in storage, he is putting people before career. Alice Cooper wants to be elected.
But it’s not all about debonair good looks, long flowing locks and a wicked accent – Alice Cooper has a platform that every voter can get behind. He is asking his fellow Americans, his British friends and all those around the world who are disillusioned with their leaders, to join The Wild Party.
Alice Cooper is tackling the everyday concerns discussed among his fellow woman and man - the ordinary, decent hard working (and rocking) people he meets and entertains every day while performing nearly 100 concerts a year around the world. s, stating that Alice wants "a snake in every pot, no more pencils, no more books" and "cupholders for every airplane seat".
So, if you’re looking for a candidate with a platform that matters, vote Alice Cooper, the man with the plan to tackle the hot button, contentious and provocative issues on the minds of the real America and Britain:
⦁    Getting Brian Johnson back in AC/DC
⦁    A snake in every pot
⦁    No more pencils, no more books
⦁    Adding Lemmy to Mt Rushmore
⦁    Rename Big Ben "Big Lemmy"
⦁    Groucho Marx on the $50 bill
⦁    Peter Sellers on the £20 note
⦁    Cupholders required for every airplane seat
⦁    Ban on talking during movies in movie theatres
⦁    Ban on taking selfies, except on a designated National Selfie Day
These troubled times call for a troubled mind indeed. These troubled times call for Alice Cooper. Why not me? I have t-shirts to sell."

Sheryl Cooper: "My understanding is that this person was so intoxicated that he or she could barely stand. Getting hit in the eye with a full can of beer certainly hurt! It could have been so much worse. I am thankful I'm not in the hospital or had to have stitches. My hope and prayer is that this individual made it safely home without injuring another."
