In 2019, a man's parody video of Alabama head coach Nick Saban during Thanksgiving went viral.

Just under a year later, he's back with yet another incredible parody of the Crimson Tide head coach. Joey Mulinaro was a digital content producer at 107.5 and 1070 The Fan in Indianapolis when the first video went viral.

That turned into an opportunity to work at Barstool, where he's continued to create viral content. This morning, he made a video showing "Nick Saban" speaking to kids on Halloween while handing out candy.

Of course, the video wouldn't be complete without a little testiness from the head coach. Check it out.

Mulinaro used Saban’s 2018 post-game interview following the win over Louisville with ESPN’s Maria Taylor as inspiration for the video.

At the time, Taylor asked Saban about playing both Tua Tagovailoa and Jalen Hurts in the season-opener following the 2018 title game. Tua came in for Hurts in the 2018 title game, leading the Crimson Tide to a win over Georgia.

The interview quickly went viral at the time and became a vital part of parody videos around social media.

Saban is known to get testy in postgame interviews if things aren't going well for Alabama. He should be in a good mood this weekend, though with the Crimson Tide sitting at 5-0 on the season.

Later this afternoon, Alabama faces off against Mississippi State.
