The comedy duo The Good Liars consists of Davram Stiefler and Jason Selvig, two guys who satirize people and organizations through on-the-ground comedy. They started in 2011 posing as investment bankers “protesting” the Occupy Wall Street protests, but have then moved on to other targets, like Time-Warner Cable, Chick-fil-A, and the NRA. But now, the duo have produced a film in which they, along with Roger Ayeels and Jen Richmond (played by “Daily Show” veterans Aasif Mandvi and Jena Friedman), go on the campaign travel to satirize the 2016 presidential election. Combining real footage of the The Good Liars disrupting campaign events and filmed material for the film, Stiefler and Selvig try to get to the heart of the nation through comedy. Watch an exclusive clip from the film below.

Selvig explains how when they decided to start filming the movie after they had already done a couple election videos, such as calling Trump “boring” at a press conference and getting on stage with Ted Cruz, but the actual shoot was much different. “Our first day of actual shooting specifically for the project was at a gun range in Iowa where Rick Santorum was scheduled to speak,” said Selvig. “We thought that if we were lucky we could shake his hand and have a one sentence interaction with him. When he entered I shook his hand and told him we had to take a gun safety course.  From that point on he thought I was in charge. So we sat together for a safety video and chatted and then we went to the shooting range. I’d never fired a gun in my life and Rick Santorum is loading a semiautomatic pistol for me.”
