Warning: this might be your literal nightmare. A video titled "Japanese Donald Trump Commercial" was posted online two days ago and already has more than 1.8 million views on YouTube and 13 million views on Facebook. In the trippy piece, we see a woman imagine Trump becoming world president as he barfs rainbows, sits atop buildings, and turns into mythical creatures, including a Transformer. The presumptive GOP nominee also gives a Nazi salute with pink swastikas in the background and, at the very end, blows up the planet.
The piece is not an actual Japanese ad, but the work of visual effects artist Mike Diva. Some have wondered whether the intent of the video was to make Trump look good or bad — Diva quickly answered that question on Twitter:
I dunno. i guess it depends on whether u think swastikas and trump literally blowing up the planet is bad https://t.co/YKXeI9jKl8
