Huckabee Releases Adele 'Hello' Parody Video

 (YouTube/Mike Huckabee For President)

Mike Huckabee has released perhaps the most compelling — and also the weirdest — ad of the 2016 presidential race: a video depicting the former Arkansas governor's struggles to get his message out set to the tune of Adele's smash hit "Hello."

The three-and-a-half minute video, titled "Hello Huck," is set around the snow-packed countryside of Iowa and shows Huckabee looking alternately energized, weary and reflective as he stumps through the Hawkeye State in the final days before the GOP caucuses.

In it, Huckabee is seen shaking hands with Iowans, playing a bass guitar, and shooting off a Thompson sub-machine gun as an Adele sound-alike warbles thoughts about the state and its residents:

"Time's supposed to heal you/but I ain't done much healing," with, "Try the pork chops/baked beans … Amish chairs, Casey's jerky, Quad Cities has quite a port."

The video also depicts a fake text message exchange between Huckabee and Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas about the senator's Canadian roots.

And it shows footage of Hillary Clinton waving her arms as she dances on Ellen DeGeneres' TV show.

In addition, Clinton's and Sen. Bernie Sanders' faces are pictured along the bizarre phrase, "cuckoo-ca-choo."

Huckabee's use of the Adele song may sound hypocritical to some — last year he said that Barack and Michelle Obama should stop their daughters from listening to Beyoncé's music, calling her "mental poison."

A recent CNN/ORC poll shows Huckabee with less than 3 percent of the vote.

But in an interview earlier this month with MSNBC's Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, Huckabee said Iowa voters tend to decide late on who they'll support in their caucuses and the race could once again break his way.

"I was way down in the polls eight years ago, and Rick Santorum was way down in the polls five days out," Huckabee said.

"It's a ground game and it's about Iowa voters breaking late, and I think as they start looking at the candidates, they don't know a lot about some of the newer candidates. They know a lot more about me."
