WASHINGTON, Feb. 13 (UPI) -- Members of Congress and fans of the political drama House of Cards act out scenes from the show.

The scene starts with the real life Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., and includes Rep. Jim Clyburn, D-S.C., Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., Rep. Donna Edwards, D-Md., Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-S.C., and Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C.

The popular show centers around Frank Underwood, the fictional Majority Whip from South Carolina, which is the state most heavily represented in the video. This isn't the first time politicians have shown their love for the thriller. It also cropped up in parody form at the White House Correspondents dinner and President Obama has declared his own liking for the show, saying that he wished Washington were really that "ruthlessly efficient."

Netflix will release the second season of House of Cards in its entirety on Feb. 14.
