The super PAC backing Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis used altered footage to include the sound and sight of fighter jets in the Florida governor's campaign launch video.

Video from the actual event in November indicates that no flyover took place, and the PAC's representatives didn't deny altering footage for the ad, which is part of a growing trend in political advertising that blurs the line between real and make-believe, reported Axios.

“The ‘President for the People’ video encapsulates the mounting issues facing our nation caused by Joe Biden, and how Governor Ron DeSantis will stand up to the challenge, beat Biden, and turn our country around," communications director Erin Perrine told Axios. "This message and this election is so important for all Americans.”

Never Back Down, which is legally prohibited from coordinating with the DeSantis campaign, has been a key defense for the governor from attacks from GOP frontrunner Donald Trump.
