Mexican Politician Plagiarizes ‘House of Cards’ Speech, Because Mexico

What could possibly go wrong?

Awww, Mexico, the land of the surreal and pure awesomeness…

In the latest political faux pas, a local politician in the state of Tlaxcala thought it was a great idea to copy, almost verbatim, a speech by the super evil Frank Underwood, of House of Cards.

In a short video posted on his Facebook account, Miguel ├üngel Covarrubias, repeats one of Underwood’s most famous speeches, calling for “opening doors and closing paradigms” to end up in a dramatic: “The past has brought us here, and here is only the beginning of a great story.” Which I believe refers to the fifth season of House of Cards.

Anyhow, while Covarrubias defended himself from the criticisms saying the copy was “intentional,” Netflix responded in style by using another evil character from House of Cards, Doug Stamper, to reprimand the Mexican politician … in his own language:

“Imitation is not always the best form of flattery”
