It didn't seem like the night could get any worse for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz after he was soundly defeated by Donald Trump in the Indiana Republican primary and bowed out of the race for the presidential nomination.

However, as Cruz gave a group hug to those on stage with him after making his concession speech in Indianapolis, he accidentally elbowed his wife Heidi in the face – twice.

The image was captured on social media and news outlet NowThis for all to see, again and again:
Twitter was merciless in poking fun at the moment, as jokes went viral within minutes and ranged from his treatment of women to a reflection of the Hoosier state's love of sports.

For many, the GIF was clearly the perfect symbol of an inglorious end to an unsuccessful campaign.
