As everyone knows by now, Marco Rubio inhaled a can of bottled arid air from the Gobi desert last night before his rebuttal to the president’s State of the Union address.

The resulting drip drip drip of dry lip-smacking noises was pretty gross. The Internet reacted with nightmarishly bad parody accounts and horrible Twitter jokes. It was, however, thankfully redeemed by YouTuber totallyjk, whose supercut of all Rubio’s desperate attempts to moisten his lips is a must watch.

You’ll marvel as Rubio’s supernatural powers of desiccation spread to your own mouth. Oh god do you need a drink. You need a sip of water so, so bad right now, don’t you?
