The Michigan Republican Party is hitting Peters for taking money from loan sharks in a 30-second television spot inspired by -- you guessed it -- Sharknado.
The ad, which shows Peters in a Hawaiian shirt running away from a tornado spewing "loan sharks," accuses Peters of being "funded by a convicted felon connected to a loan shark ring run by an international gangster who also contributed to Peters' campaign."
Watch the ad above.
What's worse? This isn't the first time Republicans have pitched a Sharknado-inspired ad. Crossroads GPS, the political nonprofit founded by Karl Rove, released a YouTube video in July 2013 called "ObamaCareNado," an ad parodying Sharknado ahead of the rollout of Obama's signature health care law.
