Fatman Scoop weighs in on Scott Morrison’s Twitter video

15 September 2018

The video, which was posted to Morrison's Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts on Thursday evening, shows a bunch of Coalition MPs sticking their hands up in the air during Question Time, as the rapper shouts: "You got a hundred dollar bill, get your hands up!" In the caption, Mr Morrison praised his colleagues as being "on fire today".

Some political observers said the post raised questions about whether Mr Morrison, who became prime minister three weeks ago, and his team were fully equipped for the top job.

However, it didn't take long before some people started pointing out other less innocent lyrics from that song, including explicit references and swearing.

If you got a $100 bill put your hand up.

Given that "Be Faithful" also features lyrics like "Who fuckin' tonight?".

But the post was ridiculed as "bizarre" by people online.

Scott Morrison's freakish Twitter video. / You got a fifty dollar bill, get your hands up! "/ You got a ten dollar bill, get your hands up!"

Later in the song, the lyrics get more explicit and inappropriate with the following lyrics.

'Yeah ladies, Fatman Scoop, Faith Evans sing along!

Morrison eventually deleted the meme and apologised, tweeting that "the full lyrics of the song used in my earlier video from QT today were just not OK".

"I think people think Australians think politicians can take themselves a bit too seriously at times".

"Well s-t...looks like we will have a new PM in the morning", one person responded.

Another user made a decision to also get creative and use the lyrics to the song and ask his own question.
