The commercial is funny and cute and should help to continue molding a narrative that Cruz is personable and funny as well as conservative.

My favorite line of the ad:

If you are not completely satisfied with this collection of ‘Cruz Christmas Classics’ you probably hate Christmas and America.

NARRATOR: Imagine the greatest Christmas stories, told by the Senator who once read ‘Green Eggs and Ham’ from the Senate floor.

CRUZ: ‘Twas the night before the shutdown and all through the House, not a bill was stirring, not even to fund a mouse.

NARRATOR: A proven record presents a festive collection of timeless Christmas classics, read by the trusted conservative leader, Ted Cruz. Favorites such as: ‘How Obamacare Stole Christmas’ and ‘Rudolph the Underemployed Reindeer.’

CRUZ: Look! The speaker is melting before Congress!

NARRATOR: And the Lois Lerner masterpiece, ‘Auditing St. Nick.’
