One of the many things I like about Ted Cruz is his sense of humor, and his campaign’s latest ad, set to air tonight in Iowa during Saturday Night Live, exemplifies this beautifully.

The Blaze reports:

The ad, which features the Texas senator read Christmas classics like “Rudolph the Underemployed Reindeer” and “The Grinch Who Lost Her Emails,” will air in key Iowa markets Saturday night, campaign spokeswoman Catherine Frazier told the Independent Journal.

“In the spirit of the upcoming holiday, we are excited to bring a Cruz family Christmas into the homes of SNL viewers in Iowa,” she told the website. “Ted is a long time fan of SNL, so the chance to film his own SNL-style commercial was an opportunity we couldn’t pass up!”


In just the past couple of hours the views on this video have gone from 16,049 to 45,870 (as I type).  This brilliant and fun campaign ad might just win the internet for the day.

Here are some reactions from Twitter:
