Teenage Ted Cruz plans "world domination"

A young Ted Cruz can be seen joking about his desire to star in teen films or rule the world in a video uploaded to YouTube over the weekend, called "Young Ted Cruz."

In the video, which apparently shows Cruz, now a senator from Texas, in 1988 at Second Baptist School in Houston, Cruz answers an unheard question about what his aspirations are.

"Aspirations? Is that like sweat on my butt?" Cruz said. "Oh, I see, what I want to do in life. My aspiration is to, I don't know, be in a teen tit film, like that guy who played Horatio. You know, he was in 'Malibu Bikini Beach Shop'?"

Beyond that, he added, "Well, other than that? Uh, take over the world," he says. "World domination, yeah. World everything, you know: rule everything, rich, powerful, that sorta stuff."

The video was uploaded by the account Mad Canadian Top 5 & Reviews.
