Pollies rock on ahead of federal election

Canberra-based indie punk band Super Best Friends have scored a coup, of sorts, convincing Australia’s federal politicians to front a music video for the band’s song Round and Round.

The music video sees senior politicians, including Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, Opposition Leader Tony Abbott and Greens Leader Christine Milne, along with press gallery members lipsynching the song.

Within hours of being posted on YouTUbe, the video had already attracted 57,000 views.

The song has been released in the run up to the September federal election and includes lyrics about repetition in politics and the media cycle.

The video was put together by the band’s bass player Matt Roberts who managed to convince the politicians and media identities to be involved in the video.
