'It feels good to be a Clinton'

(Newser) – The people making ads for Ted Cruz may not be familiar with softcore porn, but they've clearly seen Office Space. A newly released video goes after Hillary Clinton in memorable fashion by parodying a scene from the movie. In "It Feels Good to Be a Clinton," an actress portraying her wields a baseball bat to destroy a computer with the help of two male aides. And just like in the movie (in which a printer is destroyed), it's set to the tune of the Geto Boys' "Damn It Feels Good to Be a Gangsta," reports Time. (You can see the movie version here.)

If the reference to Clinton's email scandal isn't abundantly clear, the revised lyrics, here via Politico, should help: "Damn it feels good to be a Clinton. A server full of secrets ain’t no thing. Damn it feels good to be a Clinton. Nothing ever hits with a sting." Also mixed into the rap is Clinton herself saying, "What difference does it make?" in response to questions about the Benghazi attack during a congressional hearing, notes Fortune. (Bernie Sanders also has a music-themed ad, but it's a little less violent.)
