Ted Cruz is trying to woo voters by parodying “Office Space” in a new campaign ad attacking Hillary Clinton over her email scandal.
“Damn, it feels good to be a Clinton,” a song says as an actress dressed as the Democratic presidential candidate joins to two other men in smashing a computer server in an empty field — a clear homage to one of the funniest scenes in Mike Judge’s 1999 comedy. In that scene, the three main characters take out their frustration with their mundane jobs on a malfunctioning printer.
The ad that debuted on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Friday suggests Clinton will never be held accountable for her actions.
“A Clinton never needs to explain … a real Clinton knows that they’re entitled,” the song alleges. “A Clinton kills it off with a smile.”
The new ad comes after the Cruz campaign pulled a previously release ad after discovering an actress cast in it had starred in several softcore porn films. GOP rival Marco Rubio should be relieved, because that particular ad targeted him.
