Jokes about Donald Trump’s hair are as commonplace as Republican candidates, an easy target if there ever was one. Carefully in place, but still so unnatural, those fluffy orange tendrils beg to be mussed with the same urgency a rom-com lady’s hair needs to be tenderly tucked behind her ear. And because the internet has too much time on its hands, there’s a website that lets you blow a trumpet to tousle that thatch. TrumpDonald.org—the product of a divinely simple play on the man’s name—is nothing but Trump’s face, a trumpet, and the chance to catch his hair in the instrument’s exhaust.

TrumpDonald.org comes from Stockholm advertising agency Animal, who didn’t do the project on assignment—according to Creative Director Jacob Sempler, they just wanted to make the internet great again. “Deep down, we’ve all wanted to play with Donald Trump’s hair,” he told The A.V. Club. There’s a running tally of Trumpeted Donalds on the site—it’s more than 56 million as of this writing—and according to Sempler, 185 countries have Trumpeted Donald. The day it launched, it was trending on Twitter ahead of the real Donald Trump.

Sempler and his agency are Swedish, but he points out whoever becomes the next U.S. president affects everyone. “As Swedes, we obviously cannot vote in the U.S.—so the trumpet became our vote,” he said.
