It’s not a secret that fist-pumping politician Bernie Sanders has amazingly similar vocal qualities to beloved Hollywood crank Larry David. Filmmaker Dominick Nero decided to take scenes from last night’s first Democratic presidential hopeful debate and splice in Curb Your Enthusiasm-style sounds and editing. The result is astonishingly perfect.
“Bernie just sounds so much like Larry David. There’s nothing we can do about it. He’s just as ornery, just as drab, and just as lovable as everyone’s favorite aging neurotic mad-man,” Nero said in an email. “I thought it would be a fun challenge to use only clips from this recent debate to show how similar these two pasty old white dudes are, both in physical appearance, and in their hilarious, red-faced, argumentative antics. But, as I dove into this edit, I quickly noticed how silly these debates seem, when a soundtrack is added—it almost does devolve into a chatty Curb episode.”
