The 2016 U.S. Presidential Election has been—interesting. Supporters from both sides of the isle, as well as everyone in between can't seem to agree on anything, but one thing many can agree on is the fact that it has been—well, kinda scary. So, it seems appropriate that Funny or Die enlisted frequent Tim Burton collaborator Danny Elfman to score their supercut of the horror show that was the second presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, entitled "Trump Stalks Hillary." Check it out below:
All politics aside, Elfman manages to score the awkward moments from the October 9th town hall debate in the only way Elfman could, with plenty haunting tones and shrieking violins, effectively capturing what many called the creepy, stalker vibe Trump's position on the stage seemed to communicate. Elfman shared his thoughts about it with Funny or Die:
Watching Trump lurching behind Hillary during the debate felt a bit like a zombie movie. Like at any moment he was going to attack her, rip off her head, and eat her brains.
This isn't the only video Funny or Die has made to poke fun at the Republican nominee. A quick browse through their feed is all you need for some hilarious political supercuts, shorts, and mashups like this one featuring Batman and Penguin in yet another project Danny Elfman scored, Batman Returns.
