The screen shows the official portrait of US Congressional Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — an avowed democratic socialist who has ruffled feathers within the American political establishment on either side of the political divide.
As the video zooms into her face, the portrait bursts into flames, wilting to reveal another image behind it — skulls and skeletons laid out on a dirt field.
WARNING: This story contains graphic images.
'Does Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez know the horror of socialism?' Republican congressional candidate Elizabeth Heng then asks.
Ms Heng, an American born to Cambodian parents who escaped the nation's genocide, aired the political advertisement during the US Democratic primary debate last Thursday night.
Paid for by a new Republican political action committee (or PAC) known as New Faces, the provocative 30-second video has riled observers in the US and abroad, appearing to link Ms Ocasio-Cortez's politics with that of the Khmer Rouge regime, under which the Cambodian genocide took place.
The Cambodian genocide occurred between 1975 to 1979 and resulted in the deaths of almost 2 million people — or 25 per cent of Cambodia's population.
Labelled Asia's holocaust, it happened under the bloody leadership of Cambodia's dictator at the time, Pol Pot, and his Khmer Rouge regime, as they sought to turn the country into a socialist agrarian republic.
The regime enforced a mass exodus from the country's cities, pushing men, women and children into rural labour camps, which became sites for mass executions, malnutrition, starvation and physical abuse.
New Faces' video is interspersed with images of emaciated Cambodians, rows of dead bodies, and mass graves as a sombre piano melody plays behind Ms Heng's narration.

'My father was minutes from death in Cambodia, before a forced marriage saved his life — that's socialism: forced obedience, starvation,' she says.
It finishes with Ms Heng speaking directly to the camera as it becomes clear the video is a Republican political advertisement.
'Mine is a face of freedom, my skin is not white, I'm not outrageous, racist, or socialist … I'm a Republican,' Ms Heng says.
New Faces says AOC harbours 'extreme socialism'
On its website, the New Faces PAC — officially launched days after the video's release — describes itself as an organisation formed because the US is 'at risk of being destroyed by extreme, socialist Democrats who want to upend the American way of life'.
It goes on to imply that the Republican Party is currently failing to speak to American's multicultural communities, and warns that Democrats have 'dynamic, young messengers who relate to the next generation of voters'.
Ms Ocasio-Cortez — along with three other newly-elected congressional Democrats known as 'the squad' — have drawn the ire of US President Donald Trump and his Republican allies with progressive policies their critics have described as radical.
One such policy, known as the Green New Deal, seeks to reshape the US's economic and energy landscape in a bid to drastically reduce America's greenhouse gas emissions and reduce what the squad says is America's immense income inequality.
'If you also believe in a free + open democratic society, where people are treated humanely and don't die over $300 insulin or needless war, they'll call you a communist too,' Ms Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter in response to the New Faces video.
In recent months, the squad's critique of the Trump administration's treatment of migrants on the country's southern border triggered a controversial rebuke by Mr Trump, with him telling the politicians to 'go back' to the countries they came from.

Three out of the four congressional Democrats were born in the US, and all hold non-white ancestries.
This led to the Democratically controlled House of Representatives voting to officially condemn the President for his 'racist comments' which it said 'legitimised and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of colour'.
'A love letter to Republican white supremacy'
While the President has so far not commented on Ms Heng's advertisement, Ms Ocasio-Cortez said the ad was 'a love letter to the GOP's [Republican] white supremacist case'.
'Republicans are running TV ads setting pictures of me on fire to convince people they aren't racist,' she tweeted.
Youk Chhang, head of the Documentation Centre of Cambodia — a non-governmental organisation tasked with documenting the Cambodian genocide — told the ABC the ad was 'not racist'.
'Speaking as a US citizen myself, Elizabeth Heng is very bold but her work is not racist,' Mr Chhang said.
'And Congresswoman Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez is not a former Khmer Rouge cadre living in the US.'
He said because the Khmer Rouge's genocide 'still resonates' throughout the world, personal history attached to it 'can serve as a platform for critical reflection of present and future conditions'.
In the days after the ad was first aired, members of America's Cambodian diaspora have voiced opposition to Ms Heng's use of Cambodian history.
'As a survivor of the Khmer Rouge and now as Cambodian American I'm appalled by this ad,' wrote one Twitter user, 2sarann.
'Nearly 2 million Cambodian starved or were killed because no one was above 'Anka'; based [on] the ideology of Maoist & China communist 'cultural revolution'.'
But despite the criticism, Ms Heng remains undeterred.
'@AOC response is the Democratic party in a nutshell. They are more offended by truthful words than the acts of their political ideology that has killed millions of innocent victims,' she wrote.

'I don't care about [her] feelings — I care about stopping her lies about the lies of socialism.'
