We’ll never get to see that series of 2016 election ads starring Terry Crews, but there’s still good news for fans of President Camacho and Mike Judge’s Idiocracy: The 2006 cult classic comedy is celebrating its 10th anniversary by returning to theaters this October, just one month ahead of the presidential election — you know, just in case you need a little boost of humor (or a scarily prescient reminder) before you head into the voting booth.

Not long ago we learned that Idiocracy director Mike Judge and screenwriter Etan Cohen were planning on making a series of anti-Trump ads for the coming election, which would feature Terry Crews reprising his role as President Camacho. Not long after that, it was revealed that the ads wouldn’t be happening after all, and in a new interview, Judge himself explains why the idea ultimately fell apart.

Idiocracy wasn’t just a hilarious satirical comedy, it felt eerily prescient. In the years since Mike Judge’s film hit theaters, “Idiocracy is real life” has become a running joke, particularly now that Donald Trump is running for President, with many noting the resemblance between the presumptive Republican nominee and the fictional President played by Terry Crews. It’s a fairly easy (and pretty funny) comparison to make, and in case you were wondering, the filmmakers themselves see it, too.
