Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee's campaign took a turn for the utterly bizarre Wednesday when he released a music video parody of "Hello" by Adele. As if that wasn't ill-advised enough, it seems from the lyrics that Huckabee is trying to win over Iowa — where he won the caucuses in 2008 but is currently polling around 2 percent — with some left-handed compliments. A taste:

Hello.Ankeny.Arctic blasts, sub-zero chills, campaigning is a dream.I got frostbite.Gangrene.Iowans are not for sale, they're stubborn and picky.

So you're prepared to sing along, the chorus goes: "Hello from the Caucus Night / If Bernie wins I'm gonna die / This crazy circus, it's gone coo-coo-ca-choo / And Huckabee is the guy who is long overdue." Watch below. Jeva Lange
