In the ads, Ash describes America as “that sad gal at the party no one wants to bang,” and that he promises to “life her purple mountain majesties and trim her fruity plains.” He also describes himself as a “real man,” who looks like “Mitt Romney from the waist up but is Barack Obama from the waist down.” He’s ready, willing, and “mostly able,” and urges you to vote for him because he’ll “make America groovy again” and because he “f*cking said so.”

Bruce Campbell has played Ash Williams since the first “Evil Dead” film back in 1981. He reprised the role in the sequels “Evil Dead II” and “Army of Darkness.” He also made a cameo in the 2013 remake of “The Evil Dead.”
