Rob Ford has re-emerged in a new video that surfaced Tuesday in which the Toronto Mayor appears intoxicated
, slurring his speech while attempting a Jamaican accent and cursing at a fast-food restaurant.
In the video Ford appears to be complaining to patrons about a police stakeout from last year.

"I was with some friends and what I do in my personal life with my personal friends, that's up to me," Ford said in the video, as deciphered by the Guardian
. "It really has nothing to do with you guys."
"Chase me around for five months," the incoherent mayor continued. "Leave me alone. And then try and tell me, we're counter-surveilling the guy. He's hiding here, I'm hiding here. Oh, we don't know?"
The video was posted to YouTube Tuesday afternoon. The Toronto Star reported that two men attempted to sell them the video earlier in the day for an asking price of $7,500.
Ford’s brother Doug pushed back on media reports that claimed the video was made Monday evening, insisting to reporters at Toronto’s city hall Tuesday that his brother had not gone off the wagon since November.
"It wouldn’t have been him (Monday night)," Doug Ford said, the Toronto Sun reported
. "I’m sure it was him, but it wasn’t (Monday), I haven’t seen the video. I know it wasn’t (Monday) because I was talking to him (Monday) night (at 10:30 p.m.)."
Ford further stressed that the mayor had "given up drinking, 100 percent."
"We’re playing games now, but I’ll repeat what he said 10 million times. (Since) the beginning of November, he hasn’t taken a drink. It’s simple," Doug Ford continued. "Obviously, that’s him, but it didn’t happen (Monday) night."
According to his brother, the mayor has slimmed down since the video was shot, which is why he says he knows the video wasn’t shot recently.
The mayor has yet to weigh in on when the video was shot, though he admitted to reporters late Tuesday that he had a "little bit" to drink Monday night.
Ford became internationally known last year for admitting to using crack cocaine
during a drunken stupor. He initially denied the accusation until a police video surfaced that appeared to show him using the illicit drug.
