In the wake of a bombshell phone call between President Donald Trump and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger that leaked over the weekend, the Gregory Brothers decided to put a musical spin on the situation.

Set to the tune of "Season of Love" from the hit Broadway musical Rent, the YouTube based quartet released their remix of the Trump recording on Saturday, reaching almost 1.5 million views according to the Advocate.

"I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have" Trump sings instead of the original songs "526,500 minutes".

Audiences across Twitter are singing the Gregory Brother's praises, including the star of Rent's original Broadway run, Anthony Rapp.

Writing about the likely feelings Rent's creator Johnathan Larson would have on the remix, Rapp tweeted that "I think it's safe to say that [he] would have been very proud. He was intensely political, and would have HATED Donald. I love this."
