CNN used to be the most trusted name in news. Now…well, we’re not sure what to think of CNN anymore.

The cable news channel’s latest attempt to stay relevant is a parody of the famous “Too Many Cooks” video that took the Internet by storm last November. The original video was downright bizarre, but CNN may have one-upped the source material by remixing it for the 2016 presidential election.

The video is a who’s-who of the political world, from famous faces like Bill Clinton and John McCain to more obscure people like Republic mega-donor Sheldon Adelson and Democratic pundit Paul Begala. CNN even threw in characters from infamous political ads, like the demon sheep that Republican Senate candidate Carly Fiorina used in a failed attempt to scare her way to Congress.


That’s just downright disturbing.

If you’re not already excited about the 2016 election, watch CNN’s parody video a few more times and let the ridiculousness of American politics really sink in.
