Klemen Slakonja plays the German chancellor in the YouTube video, along with a cast of dozens. Merkel dances with the German national soccer team as well as with “refugees” made up to resemble zombies. Adolf Hitler and Trump make brief cameo appearances.

“Refugees coming to Europe … don’t have the opportunities that they should get, so they are like the living dead here,” Slakonja said.
