At this point, not much about the presidential election is funny. A potential Trump presidency sounds more heinous with every passing moment.
Two guys have managed to plant some outlandish humor along the campaign trail. They gave Ted Cruz an exorcism, appeared shirtless at a Hillary Clinton rally, called Donald Trump “boring,” heckled Marco Rubio during his concession speech and demanded to be paid as seat-fillers at a Jeb Bush assembly. The media have covered these events, and in June, “The Rachel Maddow Show” figured out the same two people were staging each interruption.
It turns out the whole ordeal was part of a mockumentary called “Undecided.” The Huffington Post is premiering the trailer ahead of the movie’s Oct. 18 release on iTunes and other VOD platforms. Featuring actual campaign footage, “Undecided” is, in director Julio DePietro’s words, an “expression of frustration.” It’s a satire about Jason Selvig and Davram Stiefler, two undecided voters who band together in the midst of a disheartening democratic spectacle.
“If nothing else, at least we got to fuck with Ted Cruz,” DePietro said in a statement provided to HuffPost. “And that has to count for something.”
