TORONTO — It’s the House of Fords versus the House of Cards.

Mayor Rob Ford and Coun. Doug Ford lash out at actor Kevin Spacey and others in their latest Ford Nation YouTube videos.

The videos, posted online Friday, are the first since the brothers travelled to Hollywood last week for the mayor to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

“Kevin Spacey is an incredible actor,” Doug Ford said. “In my opinion, he’s an arrogant SOB.”

He went on to claim they were told they couldn’t take a picture with Spacey or speak to him.

“Who does this character think he is? He thinks he’s God?” he asked.

“You know Kevin, why don’t you get off your high horse and be real and take pictures with people.”

Rob Ford said he isn’t familiar with Spacey.

“I wouldn’t know him if I ran him over,” he said.

Doug Ford called Kimmel a “down-to-earth guy” and confirmed he will appear on their YouTube show at some point in the future.

Ford appeared on Kimmel’s post-Oscar special just ahead of Spacey.

When he came on stage, Spacey cracked a few Ford jokes.

The House of Cards star joked it was the first time he had to follow such a “banged up” Ford. Kimmel thanked Spacey for sharing a dressing room with Ford.

“He threw up all over it but those are the chances you take,” Spacey told Kimmel.

In one of the three videos called “Ford goes to Hollywood!” the Fords also address a TMZ story posted about the mayor at a post-Oscar party.

“I got in trouble, again, for something I shouldn’t have got in trouble for,” Rob Ford said.

TMZ reported he was handing out his promotional magnets from a private, pool-side cabana at the party.

“All these crazy rumours were running around saying I bought a cabana,” he said.

Doug Ford slammed TMZ.

“If I wasn’t too busy sitting here with you I’d be suing their ass off,” he said.

The Fords then slag councillors for complaining about the mayor’s trip to L.A.

Doug Ford did an impression of Deputy Mayor Norm Kelly to mock his claim that businesses might not invest in Toronto because of the mayor’s antics.

“I can’t stand these hypocrites, these politicians that are as phony as a three-dollar bill,” Doug Ford said.

That prompted the mayor to warn his brother he may get in trouble for saying that.

The mayor — who remains under police investigation — then starts singing the theme song to the TV show COPS as the video ends.

"Bad boys, bad boys whatcha gonna do, what you gonna do when they come for you?"
