If you don’t want to pay attention to the US presidential race, this Mass Effect 2 ad rip-off for Donald Trump will get you to reconsider.
The official Twitter account for US presidential candidate Donald Trump, has tweeted a seemingly supporter-made campaign ad that’s actually the Mass Effect 2 launch trailer, but with different quotes and footage.
The video was tweeted earlier, but the tweet made no mention of the ad’s creator, leading some to believe it was official.
The ad is relatively well-produced, replacing press quotes about Mass Effect 2 with ones relating to Trump and the presidential race. Footage of real-world events are interspersed with the same trailer music, as well as Martin Sheen’s (Illusive Man) narration.
It seems like a troll attempt, given the context, but I really can’t say for sure. The YouTube mirror has since been removed by EA, but you can still watch it below:

Now that we’re done laughing at Trump’s expense, let’s take moment to appreciate what a great launch trailer this was.
