Take a look behind the scenes of presidential campaign commercial production in this awkward video!
The footage comes from a reel of uncut material published by Cruz for use by Super PACs in political ads. Super PACs are independently funded political action committees who support candidates indirectly through those ads you see on tv every election year. You know, the ones that come with that "paid for by the people for candidate x" disclaimer at the end of every commercial. Candidates are legally not allowed to coordinate with these independent committees on campaign ads, so they release footage of themselves on sites like YouTube. This means the video is in the public domain and becomes fair game not only for Super PACs to use, but in this case for CNN to put together into a delightfully awkward super cut.
