Hidden Video Shows Charade of Ted Cruz’s Campaign Commercials

Ted Cruz coach his family through a campaign ad shoot Now Ted Cruz's mom is literally rolling her eyes at Ted's exaggeration... and this is also the moment so many American's fell in love with Ted Cruz's mom for giving Ted the eye-roll in person that we all wish we could give him.

CNN re-released a video that shows all of the edited and cut footage from a Ted Cruz Presidential campaign commercial with his family. The footage was quietly uploaded by the Cruz campaign.

The video shows numerous interruptions, awkward Cruz family encounters, and a strange high number of takes interrupted by a person coughing offscreen.

CNN.com, who edited the behind-the-scenes Ted Cruz footage, explained that since campaigns “can’t coordinate with SuperPACs”, they “quietly” upload “hours” of this type of footage in order to comply.

Ted Cruz’s Family “Values”

Even in CNN’s heavily edited version of the hours-long behind-the-scenes Cruz footage, the awkwardness of his family dynamic is easily ascertained… and it’s not good.

Cruz is visibly angry – or at least looks so – when someone off screen coughs, messing up a take.

His mother seems angry as she repeatedly states she doesn’t want to tell a story because it is too private. When that happens (repeatedly), viewers can easily hear Ted Cruz coaching his mother off screen: “I want to tell that, and you’re the best person to tell that”… his mother then begrudgingly tells the story.

Cruz’s wife is asked (inexplicably) to recite lines from Dr. Suess’s classic “Green Eggs and Ham”…

Then, in what is perhaps one of the most telling clips in the video, Cruz says, with his mother close by: “Not a day goes by that my mom is not lifting me up in prayer…for hours…at a time..”
