It took less than 24 hours for remix artist Cassetteboy to assemble this #PigGate parody video, using clips of U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron to lampoon the most lurid political scandal we’ve seen in years.

#PigGate refers to the as-yet unconfirmed allegation that during his initiation into an elite “dining club” at Oxford University, Cameron performed an intimate act with the severed head of a pig. For obvious reasons, this story has taken the Internet (and the British news media) by storm.

It should not come as a surprise that this video is somewhat NSFW, so watch at your own risk. It’s also very catchy.
