Richard Linklater’s Made Yet Another Advertisement Assaulting Ted Cruz
A few of the very best work well-known filmmaker Richard Linklater has actually carried out in years has actually been a series of thirty-second videos, about 4 shots each, of a Texan old-timer sitting at a restaurant table. Approved, stated Texan has actually invested the videos knocking Ted Cruz– potentially the 2nd least liked individual on earth, after Piers Morgan
It’s all part of a series for the “Fire Ted Cruz” PAC, which is precisely what it seems like. Linklater, a happy longtime Austinite, has actually directed the advertisements– 3 up until now– which aren’t a lot pro-Beto O’Rourke, Cruz’s Democratic challenger in the continuous senatorial race, even virulently, wonderfully anti-Cruz. They all star Sonny Carl Davis, a seen-it-all, straight-shootin’ regional who appeared in Linklater’s 2011 movie Bernie
When last we sat with Davis, he was raking the Republican pol over the coals for dissing Texan hamburger joint Whataburger while signing the supposed blue collar applauds of White Castle– a chain that does not even run in Texas. Prior To that Davis belittled Cruz’s self-claimed “durability,” regardless of the truth that he not did anything when a particular sitting president called his better half a “pet” and declared his father was in on the Kennedy assassination.
