That didn't take long. Just four days after becoming an instant folk hero after asking a question during Sunday's town-hall presidential debate, Ken Bone has appeared in his first ad. For Uber!
The red-sweater-wearing Belleville, Ill., resident tweeted out a link Thursday to uberSELECT, the high-end car service (featuring rides in BMWs, Lexuses and more) that has just arrived in his fair Midwestern city.
Everyone wants to know if I've decided… and I have. uberSELECT helps you ride in style like me https://t.co/HyOS8z9SRd

In fact, as Uber explains on its website, Bone—who describes himself on Twitter (where he already has more than 200,000 followers) as a "somewhat reluctant, undecided, cuddly internet political faceman!"—took the first-ever uberSELECT ride in St. Louis this morning.
"Ken Bone has decided… and he's chosen uberSELECT!" the brand says, in a nod to his undecided-voter status, which is what got him into the debate in the first place.
Fashion advertisers, shame on you all for not throwing him a Bone first.
