'Idiocracy' comes to life
Actor Terry Crews appears to be drawing a parallel between the 2016 presidential race and the film “Idiocracy,” in which a man of average intelligence is transported to a future where he is the smartest man on earth.

In a Twitter/Instagram posting Thursday, Crews resurrected his character from the film, President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho.


“All y’all need to stop tripping,” Crews tweeted in character. "Chill the F out, ‘Merica.”

Crews posted the tweet with a photograph depicting him in Camacho’s garb from the science-fiction comedy. He wears an American flag wrestling singlet, an oversized gold medal and shin guards while sitting on a throne. The still additionally boasts the hashtag #Camacho2016.

“Idiocracy” was directed by Mike Judge and stars Luke Wilson, Maya Rudolph and Dax Shepard.

Wilson and Rudolph play two characters who are accidentally cryogenically frozen for 500 years, awakening in a U.S. that embraces low intelligence and rampant consumerism.

Crews also dusted off his Camacho persona during the 2012 presidential election. He recorded a series of satirical sketches that appear on “Funny or Die,” a popular comedy website.
