Mash-up artist SwedeMason strikes again with a video lip synced so beautifully that Britons everywhere are weeping with joy. We’re not even worried about over-selling it, it’s brilliant.
Centred on the increasingly embarrassing gulf between Cameron and his fellow Oxford alumnus Boris Johnson, the video has the pair lip sync to the song ‘Baby Come Back’ – originally sung by The Equals.
But this time, it’s sung by Boris and Dave, using excerpts from their speeches mashed together to have them appear to sing a revised set of lyrics.
In this version, Cameron sings ‘Boris Come Back’, while the Mayor of London and wannabe Conservative party leader Boris Johnson plays hard to get.
Thousands of people have taken to social media to share the video, and the fact that they can’t stop watching it.

It takes a terrifying level of skill and effort to produce a lip sync mash up this good. So without further ado, enjoy.

We need your help ...
The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.
Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.
We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.
