Netflix’s House of Cards has released a new trailer teasing the streaming series’ fourth season and it’s a classic. It parodies political commercials that will besiege out TV airwaves in the months leading up to the 2016 election. A montage of faces, flags and freedom dissolve into each other over lines that include, “Putting people over politics.” All it needs is an elderly man saluting a flag and I’d be in tears. But they’d be tears of laughter and joy, because it is SO brilliant — Bravo Netflix. Additional kudos for premiering the commercial during Tuesday’s GOP primary debate on CNN.
At the end of Season 3, Claire Underwood (Robin Wright) told her husband Frank (Kevin Spacey) — the President of the United States — that she wanted a divorce, while he was up to his eyeballs in re-election drama with Heather Dunbar (Elizabeth Marvel) and Jackie Sharp (Molly Parker). And Doug Stamper (Michael Kelly) showed that he’s one of the most brutally riveting characters on TV. I can’t wait to see what will happen next.
I love that Frank’s political URL is FU2016.com. Hilarious. I can’t wait for this season to premiere; House of Cards was made for the circus of the insane that will be Election 2016.
