ny_tx_FU.pngLast month, Texas Governor Rick Perry embarked on a tour of New York and Connecticut with the goal of convincing businesses to relocate from the northeast to the Lone Star State.

The tour, which follows similar pitches to businesses in Illinois and California, included a radio and television advertising blitz. Check out Perry's appeal to the New York business community below.

Needless to say, New York was not impressed -- least of all Manhattan-based comedian Lewis Black. So last week, in an appearance on The Daily Show, Black and his fellow New Yorkers pushed back with a video response to Perry's anti-New York, pro-Texas ad.

Their message to the chest-thumping Perry? F**k you.

Watch the video after the jump -- it's brilliant.

Warning: obviously NSFW language.
