Party release mocked-up footage of leader in run up to the general election
The Liberal Democrats have unveiled an official mashup video of Nick Clegg ‘performing’ the song ‘Uptown Funk’.
The Cassetteboy-style video, which can be seen below, sees footage of Clegg speaking at a party conference cut up so he is repeating lines from Mark Ronson‘s hit single. The Deputy Prime Minister and Lib Dem leader can be heard saying “Don’t believe me just watch” and “too hot” from the original with additional policies from the party’s manifesto.
The video has been revealed in the run up to the 2015 general election, which takes place in May, and is dubbed as the Liberal Democrats (unofficial) Election Anthem.
The original ‘Uptown Funk’ features vocals from Bruno Mars and spent seven weeks at Number One in the UK upon its release in 2014. The hit single has been streamed over 125 million times since its release last year and was streamed over 15 million times in the last week of January alone.
