First they did it with Pierre Poilievre's so-called "vanity videos," and now the federal Liberals have remixed a Conservative campaign ad featuring Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

The original ad from the Tories, "Proven leadership," which was released on Monday, has Harper working in an office while narrating some of the challenges of being prime minister. As he speaks, news headlines flash across the screen.

The Liberals' version, titled "Turn out the lights," reworks those headlines.

"Most of the decisions you have to make in this job are hard ones. You have to confront issues you never expected," Harper's voice says over an image of himself shaking hands with suspended senator Mike Duffy.

As the clip ends, and Harper is seen leaving his office and turning off the lights — get it? — the Liberals' message pops up: "Let's turn out the lights on the Harper Decade. It's time for change."
