Watch: Surreal Trump Commercial Nails the Acid Trip Nature of His Authoritarian Campaign

Could YouTuber and meme creator Mike Diva’s Japanese-inspired Trump commercial be any more over the top?


The video starts with a young Harajuku-style girl laying in her bedroom, the walls decorated with pictures of the GOP candidate. After Trump is elected “world president,” the fan girl ventures on an acid trip complete with Trump trees, explosions and...a Trump pony.

Well, we think it’s a pony. A barrage of symbols from hearts to swastikas follow. Trump eventually turns into a transformer robot who destroys earth, but hey it was fun for a minute or so.
