Julian Assange Gets Wiki With It in Spoof Rap Video
Julian Assange just leaked his sense of humor for all the Internet to see.
The WikiLeaks founder appeared in a spoof rap video, titled "Game of Polls," produced by Juice Rap News. It blends a hip hop beat with the theme from the HBO series Game of Thrones.
After a few minutes of Westeros-esque violence and crass language from actors depicting three top Australian officials — Labor Party leader and current Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, his predecessor Julia Gillard and opposition leader Tony Abbott of the Liberal Party — Assange appears as himself around the video's 3:30 mark.
. . . The rap gives way to Assange delivering his political platform to the stylings of "You're the Voice," an Australian '80s anthem performed by John Farnham.
From the Juice Media Statement
Thanks to the Ecuadorian people, Julian has a room in the Embassy temporarily set aside for hismedia appearances, complete with green screen and lights - which came in very handy. We were assisted by friends and the WikiLeaks team in filming the scenes inside and outside the Embassy. The entire shoot took half a day and most of the night. As it took place over a Saturday/Sunday, no Ecuadorian staff members were inconvenienced or harmed during the process. :)
Thank you,@JuiceRapNews,for bringing together all my favorite things into one video #GameOfThrones #Politics #Assange #WikiLeaks <3 <3 <3
