Ted Cruz Rips Clinton With ‘Office Space’ Ad

Feb 12, 2016

Ted Cruz's latest ad goes after Hillary Clinton with some help from "Office Space."

The ad, called "It Feels Good To Be a Clinton," features a Clinton look-alike violently destroying a computer with a baseball bat—a spoof of the famous scene in "Office Space."

The Cruz campaign also gets some help from the Geto Boys song "Damn It Feels Good to be a Gangsta." The ad opens with the line, "Damn it feels good to be a Clinton. A shameless politician plays her cards right," and goes on to criticize her e-mail controversy and role in the 2012 Benghazi attack.

A recording of her infamous response to questions during a Congressional hearing on the attack—"What difference does it make?"—is mixed into the rap.

The ad comes just one day after the Cruz campaign took down an ad attacking Marco Rubio, after learning that one of the actresses in the ad was a soft-core porn star.
