'Spinal Tap' Spoof Of Donald Trump's ABC Interview Turns It Up To 11

It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

Donald Trump’s first television interview as president has received a glorious “This Is Spinal Tap” makeover.

BuzzFeed editor Jesse McLaren dubbed audio from the 1984 comedy’s iconic “up to 11” scene over Wednesday’s footage of Trump discussing the size of the crowds at his inauguration with ABC News anchor David Muir.

The resulting clip, which McLaren posted to Twitter on Thursday, is hilarious:

McLaren said the inspiration for the parody came from filmmaker BenDavid Grabinski, who posted a joke on the same theme to Twitter.

Watch the clip above, and see the original scene from Rob Reiner’s movie below:
