Murray Hill, Inc. for Congress

Yes, it's for real:
“Until now,” Murray Hill Inc. said in a statement, “corporate interests had to rely on campaign contributions and influence peddling to achieve their goals in Washington. But thanks to an enlightened Supreme Court, now we can eliminate the middle-man and run for office ourselves.”
“We want to get in on the ground floor of the democracy market before the whole store is bought by China.”

from the campaign site:
Until now, corporations only influenced politics with high-paid lobbyists and backroom deals. But today, thanks to an enlightened Supreme Court, corporations now have all the rights the founding fathers meant for us. It was their dream to build the best democracy money can buy.

There is a Facebook page. They sell related materials with the "Corporations are people, too. -SCOTUS" slogan. Franchise opportunities are available:
“Our goal is to create a truly national movement to call attention to the Supreme Court's ruling establishing the rights of corporate persons and what that means for everyone in our country,” Murray Hill Inc. said in a statement.
