Donald Trump has been compared to “Commander Shepherd” of the Mass Effect video game in a new video, which the GOP frontrunner shared on Twitter over the weekend. The video, which features anti-trump campaigns and violence, claimed that the Trump’s supporters are “at war” with the protesters.
“We’re at war. No one wants to admit it but humanity is under attack,” Martin Sheen said in a voiceover which was taken from the popular of video games series. “One very specific man might be all that stands between humanity and the greatest threat of our brief existence.”
The bizarre video was first posted by a Trump supporter on Twitter using an account called the “trumpeffect”. It compared the billionaire with the heroic space captain “Commander Shepherd” from the Mass Effect video games series. The video also featured a small clip of a 15-year-old girl claiming she was assaulted and pepper sprayed at a Trump rally.
It is not a part of the official Trump campaign, but advocates for his ascension to the presidency. Though it was taken down a short while later, few of Trump’s followers shared the video on social media.
The video featuring quotes from Trump himself and his supporters was shared by him on Sunday night with the tagline “Make America Great Again.” Dan Scavino, Trump’s Social media director, also shared it on Twitter on the same day.
Parts of the clip also showed Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton laughing and President Barack Obama lifting weights, the CNN reported.
Following requests from Electronic Arts, the makers of the Mass Effect video games series, the ad was taken down, the Inquisitr reported. The video may also pose complicated legal questions for using contents from the popular video game to promote a political candidate.
The ad surfaced ahead of the Wisconsin’s primary, which would decide Trump’s fate as the Republican candidate for the 2016 Presidential elections.
