"What I said to myself, was, 'We don't get a fair shot in the mainstream media, so I figured, what the heck, what the hey, I would interview myself!'" Adomian added.

At one point in a clip posted to Twitter, Adomian asks Sanders how the Vermont senator achieves the rumpled look sometimes seen on the campaign trail.

"I tried to match the suit. What size is it? I asked for a size 'rumpled,' " Adomian says in the video.

"Size 'rumpled,'" Sanders responds. "Well here's the secret: You gotta sit on the suit. You get into the car, you take it off, you sit on it. Anyone can have a rumpled suit, but there's a real art to rumples."

"It was an honor to talk to myself," Sanders added in his own tweet promoting the video.
