'Trump Effect' is the most epic campaign ad you'll ever see – but it got taken down for using parts of a VIDEO GAME trailer

Rebel Staff

A new campaign ad for Donald Trump copied the trailer for Mass Effect 2 – a video game published by Electronic Arts.

The ad was originally fan-made, but found its way onto Trump's Facebook and Twitter pages.

Complete with a rocking soundtrack, amazing voice overs and an epic feel, the ad is downright explosive.

Here's a video of the ad reuploaded on YouTube.

A senior communications representative for EA told GameSpot that “the video was an unauthorized use of our IP.”

“We do not support our assets being used in political campaigns,” he said.

Here's the Mass Effect 2 trailer side-by-side with the Trump one.

What do you think? Should the fan-made campaign video have been taken down?

Oh, and for those who will wonder, the song in the trailers is 'Heart of Courage' by 'Two Steps From Hell'.

Trump is 100% ready and willing to make the USA a great nation again. When he starts he will bring Canada with him.

It’s getting taken down will contribute to it going viral.

Hell no it shouldn’t have been taken down.

Shouldn’t the Mass Effect 2 trailer have a trigger warning to feminists for showing feminine, strong female warriors comfortable in their sexuality? Not to mention a general trigger warning to the anti-firearm lobby due to the blatant use of firearms. Then, of course, there is the trigger warning required to the Kumbaya crowd because it shows meeting force with force to protect the value system.

This game trailer just requires so many trigger warnings I’m surprised the regressive socialists haven’t had an apoplectic seizure on twitter about it.

Trumps trailer is pretty benign in comparison. It even has a yapping dog.
