Ads released by Sen. Ted Cruz's presidential campaign this week have made a splash — for substance, humor and a tiny bit of scandal, if it can be called that.

Cruz's campaign released for ads this week and, for the most part, they have tried to use humor against the candidate's rivals. One ad out Friday spoofed a scene from the 1999 movie "Office Space," where a group of office workers smash a printer. It shows three people, including one meant to be Clinton, wielding a baseball bat and smashing computer equipment to the tune of "Damn it Feels Good to be a Gangster" by the Geto Boys.

Another that tried to be funny got pulled — because one of the actresses in it appeared in soft-core pornography. The ad featured a therapy group for people who supported, and felt burned by, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.)

"Maybe you should vote for more than just a pretty face next time," the woman, played by actress Amy Lindsay, said.

Cruz said Friday that Linsday "had a more colorful film history than we were aware."

The Texas Republican's campaign also released a spot this week depicting Donald Trump as an action figure that "pretends to be a Republican."

Cruz also got serious against Trump with an ad hitting the real estate mogul for his support of eminent domain and a 1990s case where he tried to take the home of an Atlantic City, N.J., woman to build a parking lot for one of his casinos. It said Trump has a "pattern of sleaze stretching back decades."
