Democratic debate host Univision took the opportunity Thursday to plug its animated parody of the 2016 presidential race Heads of Space as the debate headed to a commercial break.

In Heads of Space a group of astronauts must save Earth from an asteroid hurdling towards the planet, a la the 1998 film Armageddon.

Except in this show the astronauts are 2016 presidential candidates—Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and the gone-but-not-forgotten Jeb Bush—sent to space by President Obama as their last task in becoming leader of the free world.

Episodes of Heads of Space premiere on the Udesia YouTube channel, a venture Univision launched in December aimed at Spanish-speaking millennials.

The show’s companion website even includes a fictional newspaper, called the End of Times, which features sensationalist headlines from an alternate-future like “GOP Expected to Implode Before World Explodes.”

This isn’t the first time this election cycle that a network has used hosting a presidential debate to plug a show: CNBC went straight into its show Profit after a Republican debate broadcast in October.

Watch the trailer for Heads of Space above—no word if Bush will be removed from the show.
