That trailer for the new season of ‘House of Cards’ totally fooled us

A new peak at season 4 of House of Cards premiered last night, but if you weren’t watching the Republican Presidential debate you might have missed it.

Heck, even if you were, you may have missed it anyway. It didn’t run until the second half of the debate, and by then, your eyes may have already glazed over. The Netflix political drama starring Kevin Spacey as the cunning and homicidal President of the United States snuck the “trailer” in under the guise of a political ad for Spacey’s character Frank Underwood upcoming Presidential campaign.

Clever, right?

The “ad” opens on sweeping American landscapes and uses a lot of familiar political-phrasing like, “It’s a new day in America,” and “All because one man refuses to settle, putting people before politics.” If you weren’t paying super close attention, you might think it was an actual campaign ad. That is, until you see President Underwood at his desk in the Oval Office in the last moments of the clip, drawling, “America, I’m only getting started.”

Immediately after the trailer debuted, the official House of Cards Twitter account tweeted this message to Underwood supporters:
