Update: The audio on the video has since been un-muted. It seems the copyright issue may have been resolved. We’ll update with more information as we learn it.

In addition to her Grammys, Academy Award, and charting-topping albums, pop sensation Adele can add “getting Mike Huckabee to shut up” to her long list of accomplishments.

The former Arkansas governor and Republican presidential candidate posted a cover of Adele’s song “Hello” on Twitter and YouTube yesterday, featuring lyrics about Iowa and his rivals. Now, due to a claim from the copyright holder of the song, the audio for the post has been muted. So though you can still watch Huckabee engage in a roadside phone conversation and exchange fake text messages with Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, you are fortunate enough to do so without a questionable Adele cover playing in the background.
