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 know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
