This kid's gonna be yuge!

Thomas Middle School's graduation festivities just went viral, thanks to a heavy dose of political parody.

Instead of just thanking his teachers and classmates, eighth-grader Jack Aiello showcased his knack for impressions and public speaking while aping Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz, Bernie Sanders, and President Barack Obama. Thomas Middle School is based in Arlington Heights, Illinois.

Even Sen. Cruz gave it a thumbs-up.

“Politics has been something he’s been interested in for several years,” the boy’s father told ABC News. “He’s always been good with impressions, so while watching along with his mom and I, he picked up phrases and mannerisms of the candidates.”
