22 Minutes' 'Like A Rolling Stone' Parody Features Mulcair Mocking Tories (VIDEO)

Tom Mulcair wants to know: how does it feel?

The NDP leader, who has won rave reviews for holding the Harper government's feet to the fire over the Senate expense scandal, makes a hilarious cameo in a new clip that is bound to get Canadians talking.

The crew at "This Hour Has 22 Minutes" has released a parody of the much-discussed, interactive music video for Bob Dylan's "Like A Rolling Stone," which allows viewers to flip through a digital TV dial while various actors lip-sync the iconic song.

CBC has created a cool site that allows users to do much the same. However, the lyrics have been changed to reflect the Wright-Duffy affair, and Mulcair and Liberal MP Marc Garneau are featured right alongside "22 Minutes" stars poking fun at Stephen Harper's former right-hand man.

It's a safe bet this video will be as big a hit as other recent "22 Minutes" song parodies skewering Canadian politicians, including Lorde's "Royals" ("Tories"), Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" ("Get Duffy") and Ylvis' "The Fox (What Does The Fox Say?)" ("What Does Rob Ford Say?")

You can watch the video above but here are the lyrics, in case you'd like to sing along.

Once you knew a guy from P.E.I.

He told a little lie, you tried to hide.

Didn't you?

Shouldn't have put out your neck,

Shot your foot when you wrote the cheque.

Now you're screwed.

They won't let you forget the time.

You signed upon the dotted line.

Told the senators to play along.

Now we know that Wright was wrong.

The RCMP wanna see receipts from your last meal.

Who was in on the deal?

What did you conceal?

Now your story's blown.

'Cause your email's shown.

Harper must have known.

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.
