A BRITISH comedian has produced a spoof music video (see below) in which he has a cheeky dig at Brexit supporters by comparing their arguments to the expat community resident in Spain.
Matthew Perret lives in Germany, where he works as a lecturer in European Studies in Berlin, and he told The Local that the video is an attempt to “fill the information gap using comedy.”
The video, accompanied by musical backing from Jeremy Limb, begins like a party political broadcast, with a suited and austere Perret saying: “I’m British and I’m concerned about free movement of people in the EU.
“Imagine a country with entire neighbourhoods full of EU migrants who barely contribute to the local economy, use many healthcare services and on top of that don’t make the slightest effort to integrate and learn the language.
“With Brexit we hope to put a stop to this phenomenon.”
The video then segues into a Cockney-style knees-up entitled ‘Spanish Hip Hop’, with the comedian superimposed over an image of a ‘typical’ British pub, as he sings “Let’s have a little fun and retire in the sun…no need to worry if you should get ill, it’s the taxpayers of Spain what pick up the bill [sic].”
“Let’s hop to the Costa, the healthcare won’t cost ya” continue the lyrics.
