Comedian Alex Ptak brought his own spin on 2020 presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke to Twitter, Mashable reported on Friday. And it seems that take is an evil fiend, because Ptak created “Demon Beto,” and the internet can’t seem to get enough.
Any good politician knows what the people really want.
“Hungry Americans are looking for pious blood,” Demon Beto says in Ptak’s video.
Demon Beto referenced his Texas roots, too.
“Down in Texas when we say ‘way down south,’ we mean in hell,” according to Demon Beto.
Folks... it's Demon Beto pic.twitter.com/zgtcLkNtFN— Alex “Big Cash” Ptak (@PtakJokes) April 11, 2019
And it looks like Demon Beto might have higher favorability ratings than his more wholesome counterpart—at least among comedy fans on Twitter.

Demon Beto references real Beto’s punk past in the video: “We are all part of a band, a band called the devil.”
"we are all in a band called, the devil" is so good— the tony soprano of synthwave (@vile_hog) April 12, 2019
O’Rourke is known for having visited every single district in Texas during his Senate campaign. As a 2020 presidential candidate, O’Rourke has already visited Iowa, Vermont, and South Carolina. And it looks like Demon Beto is hitting the campaign trail, too: “We’re going to Damascus, that’s where the sin gate is.”
