MILWAUKEE, WI. — It took mere hours for the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame to all but answer the people's call to somehow commemorate Bernie Sanders' viral look during the Inauguration on Wednesday.

The Democratic Senator was still trending news rolling into Thursday morning as he was pictured watching the Inauguration ceremony to swear in Joe Biden as the nation’s 46th President.

His look? Mittens, a face mask, winter coat, sitting cross-legged on a folding chair on the white podium base. Evidently a cold winter day in the nation's Capitol, social media took his pose to mean several things:

"As soon as one of our employees alerted us to the viral pictures of Bernie, we checked out Twitter and knew we had to get to work,” Phil Sklar, the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum co-founder and CEO, wrote in a release. “We think this will be another fun bobblehead to put a smile on people’s faces!”

The bobbleheads are only available through the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum’s online store for $25 and an $8 shipping charge.

This is the second bobblehead of Sanders produced by the museum. The first was released in 2016 when he ran for president.

Sanders' newest bobblehead follows a string of recent bobbleheads commemorating viral moments, with the most recent being the Mike Pence Fly Bobblehead.
