Governor Andrew Cuomo has been butting heads with Mayor Bill de Blasio recently, but now he's taking a page from the mayor's book when it comes to his re-election campaign image.

Seeking another term in this year's gubernatorial election, Cuomo hired AKPD Message and Media partner Michael Donilon to serve as his campaign media consultant.

That's the same brains behind Mayor de Blasio's 2013 campaign ad featuring 15-year-old son Dante.

Some credit the commercial with being a key factor in de Blasio winning the Democratic primary last year, including those with the rival Christine Quinn campaign.
