A YouTube video uploaded on Tuesday casts Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich as the mean-spirited protagonist from Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

The video, by Adam Kontras, intersperses quotes from Gingrich with a surprisingly believable impersonation of the singing of Boris Karloff, who narrated The Grinch movie.

The parody comes after the presidential candidate said public school janitors should be replaced by schoolchildren and later suggested that the children of poor families were lazy.

On Monday, Gingrich also announced that business mogul Donald Trump would employ at least 10 poor children as “apprentices.”

“The three words that best describe you are as follows, and I quote, 1 per cent,” the song concludes.

The video was not the only Christmas-themed Gingrich parody to hit YouTube. Another video by Christopher Duva, “It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Gingrich,” was uploaded on December 1. Watch it below:
