Kids across the ditch are making fun of Donald Trump.

Donald Trump is probably used to copping it from his critics, but not from a bunch of New Zealand children on the internet.

That's exactly what's going on in this viral web video that features 6 Kiwi boys making fun of the US presidential hopeful by dressing up in golden-coloured wigs and issuing troubling quotes.

The stunt is an ad for a New Zealand online electricty store called Powershop and the clip has so far been viewed almost 100,000 times.

The 1-minute video shows the kids repeating Trump-like quotes directly to the camera.

"Be careful lying Ted or else I'll spill the beans on your wife," one boy said in the video.

"My IQ is one of the highest, and you know it," says another.

"You can never be too greedy," quips a third.

Powershop chief executive Ari Sargent told 9news.com.au that the ad was about using power the right way.

"[Trump] likes to abuse his power and influence to promote his prehistoric views about minority groups of society," Mr Sargent reportedly said.

"Our video parodies Mr Trump by projecting his own words through the mouths of loveable toddlers to highlight how infantile he is."

Republican nominee Donald Trump has been slammed for making a number of controversial comments on the campaign trail, including claims of racism.
