Smart political ad: David Dewhurst uses Pac-Man to attack Ted Cruz in Texas Senate race

in Uncategorized by


Republican Texas Senate candidate David Dewhurst uses the 1980s arcade game Pac-Man as the theme behind a video attacking Ted Cruz, the tea party candidate he will face in a run-off for the GOP nomination in July. Called “DC Pac Man,” the video shows Cruz’s face as Pac-Man gobbling up outside money from groups like FreedomWorks and Club for Growth. The video closes with the message: “Texas wins when DC insider Ted Cruz loses,” the video says at the end in Pac-Man font. “Tell Washington it’s game over.”
