Donald Trump Parodied with Japanese-style Commercial

YouTuber Mike Diva has helped make the internet a slightly stranger and more wonderful place today with a new video that places presidential contender Donald Trump into an ultra-kawaii, Japanese-style commercial.

Why? The better question might be: why not?

In the ad, Trump, who’s just been voted world president, occupies a strange, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu-esque landscape in which he is transformed into, among other things, sakura tree petals, a unicorn/brachiosaurus-lookin’ thing, and an earth-destroying robot.

Aw, man, just watch the thing.

This isn’t the first (or even the second) time we’ve featured Trump, weirdly. He also popped up in a Japanese political cartoon, and a Republican strategist once said some not-very-kind and anime-related stuff about his supporters.
