STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Feb. 4 (UPI) -- A Swedish website is allowing users to "trump" Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump by blasting him with a virtual trumpet.

The site known as lets visitors click around a photo of Trump using a burst from a trumpet to send his hair flying in various directions. The image of Trump follows the trumpet with its eyes and even braces for the burst of air and occasional red, white and blue confetti that shoots out of the instrument.

Jacob Sempler, a creative designer at Swedish advertising agency Animal, worked on the site after Animal employees discovered the domain name was available and sought to make use of it.

"It seems like a lot of people in Sweden are following American politics," Sempler told The Local. "Obviously Swedes can't vote in the election, so creating this site became our vote; it's our way of commenting on the election."

The site features a counter in the bottom right corner that indicates the virtual trumpet has been blown in Trump's face more then 8 million times since its launch.

Sempler added that perfecting the movement of Trump's hair was a complex process that contributed to the length of the site's development time.
