A narrator says over footage of the Democratic figures that "far-left activists are attempting to gain full and total control of the U.S. government.”

The narrator adds that voters must rally behind Perdue and Loeffler in their January runoff elections, saying, “Should these Senate seats be lost, all will be lost.”

The video goes on to show Crenshaw being escorted to a military plane. He later jumps out of the plane and parachutes into Georgia, landing on a car to fight men portrayed as antifa activists.

Crenshaw released a similar Hollywood-style action movie trailer in September in which he touted a handful of Texas Republicans running for Congress.

The GOP lawmaker is using his latest video to urge Republicans in Georgia to attend a Dec. 21 rally for Perdue and Loeffler in the Peach State.

Perdue and Loeffler are facing off against Democratic challengers Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, respectively, on Jan. 5. The races will determine which party holds a majority in the Senate.

Crenshaw's new ad comes as Republicans have ramped up their condemnation of antifa, or anti-fascist, activists. The term has loosely been used to refer to a network of groups that aim to achieve more left-leaning policy changes through both nonviolent and violent means. 

Crenshaw was among the more than 100 House Republicans who signed onto an amicus brief last week in support of a Texas lawsuit seeking to challenge the election vote certifications in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Georgia and Michigan, citing unsubstantiated claims of widespread voter fraud. 

On Friday, the Supreme Court voted to throw out the lawsuit, ruling that Texas lacked the legal right to litigate over how other states conduct their elections.
