A vfx film called M.A.M.O.N.—Monitor Against Mexicans Over Nationwide, lampooning U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump’s stance on immigration and his proposal to build a U.S.-Mexico wall, has surpassed one million views on YouTube since being posted 10 days ago.

The short features a zany, raging battle between a giant mecha-Trump and ‘stereotypical’ members of the Mexican and Latino community, including the quinceañera, the quetzalcoatl, the lucha libre, the mariachi, and the chapulín colorado.

The team behind M.A.M.O.N is Uruguayan production house Aparato. The film, directed by Ale Damiani, is part of the company’s Wecanfixit project. Its stated mission is “to change the world using our geeky weapons: cinematography, visual effects and CGI. Our motto: Making the world a better place, one pixel at a time.”

Aparato mainly produces content for the South American market in various forms of media, including motion graphics, visual effects, and 2D/3D animation.
