In a Republican presidential primary that’s breaking all barriers of taste and dignity, it’s tough for humorists to keep up, but somehow the folks at Ba Lip Reading have managed. Their new “Ted Cruz: A Bad Lip Reading” is a tour de force that nails the brand’s loopy, offbeat humor, but also combines slick editing, a canny narrative, and an appropriately nasty edge to match the Republican primary’s tone thus far.
Making innovative use of the voluminous raw footage that campaigns have been uploading so their SuperPACs can save money on production costs while skirting the rules against coordination, the mock Cruz ad suddenly morphs from the offbeat BLR random humor into a poignant story of love, betrayal, and, well, more betrayal.
