Australian video wizard Huw Parkinson is famous in #auspol circles for his amazing mashups on ABC's Insiders each week. He inserted Bill Shorten into Zoolander, mashed up the U.S. election with Game of Thrones, put Tony Abbott into Indiana Jones, Kevin Rudd and Julia Gillard into The Breakfast Club and Jacqui Lambie into Ghostbusters but his latest effort might Trump them all.
The incoming U.S. president has a famous penchant for using big, bold, sweeping hand gestures to make his point during conversation. Parkinson inserted an accordion into one of Trump's speeches.
