Mullet-Wearing Julian Assange Sings the Classics

By Gary Cutlack on at

If you're done watching videos of Miley Cyrus, try this one. It's even more obscene and horrifying. It's Julian Assange singing, in a funny costume, trying to impress Australian voters with his sense of humour and vocal skills.

The clip sees Assange performing a cover version of John Farnham's epic 1980s power ballad You're The Voice, but with the lyrics changed a bit to reflect some of today's political hot potatoes. Not only is Assange singing, he's also been given a classic Aussie man makeover by Juice Rap News, an online comedy show that raps the news.

All of which probably seemed like a good idea when you've been stuck in a room in the Ecuadorian embassy for over a year. [YouTube]
