Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas released an ad in South Carolina on Friday attacking Hillary Clinton for her use of a personal email server while serving as Secretary of State. The new ad is a spoof of a classic scene from the 1999 comedy film Office Space, which features main characters viciously attacking a printer.
In the ad, a Hillary Clinton look-a-like in a smart pantsuit and dark sunglasses joins two men in office attire attacking what appears to be a server. The ad was previewed on MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Friday.
“Damn it feels good to be a Clinton,” a voice-over artist sings in a cheeky tune to the melody of “Damn It Feels Good to Be a Gangsta” by the Geto Boys, which played in the original Office Space scene. “A server full of secrets ain’t no thang.”
Cruz has released a number of new attack ads while heading into the South Carolina primary, one of which was pulled after an actress in the ad was revealed to have appeared in porn films.
