Beto-mania campaign videos are so cringe-worthy, folks think Ted Cruz made them as a joke

Campaign ads for Rep. Beto O’Rourke have many wondering if they were created to help or hurt the Texas Senate candidate in his race against Sen. Ted Cruz.

Fans of the Democrat compiled cringe-worthy videos to help get out the vote but may have inadvertently made his opponent look cooler.

In a nod to “Grease,” one group of fans called “Esther’s Follies” pulled together a video titled “Betomaniac!” to supposedly support Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke. The video features a trio of “Beto’s Banditos” singing about the candidate in what many considered to be cheesy lyrics set to the Shangri-Las song, “Leader of the Pack.”

That 1960’s classic can be seen in the video below:

With the “dislikes” outnumbering the “likes” on YouTube, the pro-Beto video ad which was posted last week, left many confused about how it would get people voting for the darling of hip millennials. Comments by Twitter users drove that point home.

But another video made by what appeared to be a community of O’Rourke voters may prove even worse as a tool to rally the masses for the Democrat. Featuring an incredibly awkward rendition of the Village People’s “YMCA” set to  pro-B-E-T-O lyrics, the short video also includes a young girl struggling to figure out the moves.

She isn’t the only one trying to figure out what’s going on.

Looks like Cruz has nothing to worry about if O’Rourke’s supporters keep helping out this way.
