Danny Elfman Turns The Presidential Debates Into a Horror Show
In just a few weeks, either Donald Trump or Hilary Clinton will become the President-elect of the United States. For many voters, that’s a horror show of an outcome. But let’s be honest: neither Jill Stein nor Gary Johnson have enough support to win out right. It’s Clinton or Trump at this point. So the real question for voters is: who scares you more?
Via Funny or Die, composer Danny Elfman has added some original horror-themed music to the footage from CNN’s second Presidential debate. In particular, the video focuses on Trump’s weird tendency to stalk Clinton as she spoke on the stage. Trump later claimed that it was Clinton who walked into his shots, but only one of them acts like a movie slasher in these clips!
Via Slate, Elfman said “Watching Trump lurching behind Hillary during the debate felt a bit like a zombie movie,” he explained. “Like at any moment he was going to attack her, rip off her head, and eat her brains.” We don’t know if we’d go that far, but Trump certainly did himself no favors. But at this point, no one should be surprised about that.
Just think, by this time next month, the election will be over! And then we’ll have to spend four years with the winner leading the country. Enjoy, America!
