You might want to sit down for this.  Comfortably Smug, shared this on Twitter:  “You guys think I’m joking or trolling when I say Dems will never win an election ever again. This is Dan Helmer, the Dem running in VA-10.”

The account then links to a campaign video that is both cringeworthy and gross.  Business Insider reports:

Democratic congressional hopeful Daniel Helmer has garnered national attention in a crowded race in which candidates often vie for any scrap of attention to break out of the pack.

Unfortunately, it may not be the kind of attention he wanted.

On Monday, the Iraq War veteran and Rhodes Scholar released a new digital ad parodying the movie “Top Gun.” Helmer sings a version of 1960s pop standard “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin'” that swapped out melancholic lyrics with bits about incumbent Republican Rep. Barbara Comstock’s opposition to the Affordable Care Act.

Here’s that version of the ad:

Just… No.  Also, they also made another video based on the Top Gun volleyball scene, because why not ruin all of this movie for everyone.  What’s next?  An ad based on the Tom Cruise/Kelly McGillis sex scene?  

Watch the “director’s cut” below:
