After all of his inflammatory statements about illegal immigrants, Latinos have made their general dislike of Donald Trump and his goals abundantly clear. In the case of Mexico, a TV station has come up with the newest way to show disdain for the plutocrat: incorporating his negativity into their sports ads.
A new commercial from Azteca begins innocently enough, playing Jimi Hendrix‘s version of the “Star Spangled Banner” before cutting away to Trump’s infamous campaign announcement speech. You know, the one where he said Mexico’s sending criminals and rapists to the United States. From there, Trump’s speech is mashed up against footage from Mexico’s pro soccer team past triumphs over Team USA.
As the ad shows Trump when he first said “our country is in serious trouble,” the commercial proved him right by showing the Mexican players scoring against USA, and smiling successfully at a press conference afterwards.
The rest of the video intersperses more of Trump’s trademark lines with shots of cheering athletes and excited fans among the crowds. The video concludes with Trump’s pronunciation of the American dream as dead, slowed down for emphasis as a challenge to the US team, which will face off against Mexico on October 10 in a qualifying match for the 2017 Confederations Cup.
