Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee's campaign released a parody video based off singer Adele's 2015 hit song "Hello" ahead of Iowa's Feb. 1 leadoff caucus.

Huckabee's campaign released a 3.5 minute online video Wednesday entitled "Hello, Huck," with satirical lyrics sung over the Adele's hit, with direct jabs to Democratic contenders Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. He doesn't mention any of his GOP rivals by name.

*Note: The video's audio has been muted by YouTube, due to copyright laws.

"Iowans are not for sale," the song says. "They're stubborn and picky. There's just no difference between Obama and Hillary."

"Hello from 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's long overdue."

Huckabee, who is lagging in the polls behind others in the crowded GOP field, previous ran for president in 2008.  He won the Iowa caucus that year, but did not win his party's nomination.
