On a day when a fresh president took office, Netflix promoted another.
“House of Cards,” the company’s favorite political drama, released a short 30 second teaser for its upcoming fifth season on Twitter roughly an hour before President Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States.
The series’ Twitter account posted a tweet with the words “we make the terror” along with the teaser. The clip did not appear to include any scenes coming from the upcoming season. Instead, the idea shows children saying the Pledge of Alliance on a dreary day at the U.S. Capitol.
The camera then zooms out to show an American flag blowing inside wind while hanging upside down, a signal of distress.
The clip ends with the date May 30th, 2017, the return date for the series.
The teaser has been retweeted more than 10,000 times.
