Republicans, who have no one but themselves to blame for the titanic disaster that is Donald Trump, also have no one but themselves to blame for the gigantic disaster that is Ted Cruz. But desperate times call for desperate measures, so they’re doing what they can to help what they perceive to be the less massive disaster win.

A few weeks ago, that entailed having Mitt Romney come out to defame Trump and speak glowingly about pretty much anyone else running on the GOP ticket. Now, late-night host Jimmy Kimmel has unveiled a parody commercial featuring Mittens trying hard to highlight the differences between the two candidates. That task, it turns out, isn’t easy. On account of both of them being awful. And just the worst.

Watch the fake ad in its entirety, below.
