Mike Huckabee's latest campaign video parodies Adele's "Hello." Yes, really.

Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee — who is in fact still running for president — released a parody video on Wednesday.

Titled "Hello, Huck," it's supposed to be a parody of Adele's "Hello." Here are some of the notable lines from the song:

  • Total pandering: "Hello, Sioux City. Your Woodbury County Supper Club has quite a cute baby. Try the pork chops, baked beans. Just as good as Pizza Ranch and Le Mars ice cream."
  • Insightful political commentary: "If Bernie wins I'm going to die."
  • A dig at Hillary Clinton: "There's just no difference between Obama and Hillary."
  • A compliment for Iowans, followed by an insult: "Iowans are not for sale. They're stubborn and picky."

But perhaps the most pertinent line in the video, in reference to the presidential race: "This crazy circus, it's gone cuckoo-ca-choo."

Yes, that's exactly right.
