Funny or Die brought back fictional office linebacker Terry Tate to weigh in on the 2016 election and Trump's 2005 comments.

Terry Tate, known from the Reebok ads on proper behavior from about a decade ago, tackles Trump to teach him a lesson. Tate appears in an extended edit of the 2005 footage of Trump and Billy Bush commenting on groping women on an Access Hollywood Bus. While the video plays out like the actual clip, at the end of the original, Terry Tate tackles Trump into the side of the bus and proceeds to yell at him regarding his conduct. After lecturing Trump about his conduct and comments, he turns to Billy Bush and utters Trump's famous phrase "You're fired."

The ad is in line with the large amount of backlash Trump has received regarding his actions and comments that came to light with the 2005 tape.
