22 Minutes' 'What Does Rob Ford Say' Spoof First Time Anyone Considered Him A Fox (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

''This Hour Has 22 Minutes" has always been on the cutting-edge of Canadian political comedy, but lately it's been bringing Weird Al's musical parody oeuvre back to the future with spoofs of Lorde's "Royals" ("Tories") and Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" ("Get Duffy").

The comedy show's latest musical target is, of course, Rob Ford. Using Ylvis' viral hit "The Fox (What Does The Fox Say?)" -- which, by the way, is originally a parody of electronic dance music by a Norwegian comedy duo -- the "22 Minutes" crew revamp the tune into "What Does Rob Ford Say?"

The funniest part (or saddest, depending on whether or not you live in Toronto) is that most of the lyrics about what Rob Ford says is what Rob Ford actually said. So thanks, guys, now we have "Birds Birds / I'll rip his eyes out" stuck in our heads.

Oh, and this latest Ford jam is but one of many tunes inspired by Toronto's own crack-mayor. Here's 10 more. Enjoy! (Or sorry.)

This Hour Has 22 Minutes airs on CBC TV Tuesday nights at 8:30 p.m. Catch more clips of the show on Facebook and Twitter.
