Music to my ears: Right Said Fred remakes song in honor of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad

In March, the British newspaper The Guardian indicated more than 3000 emails of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad had been leaked to them by a “Syrian opposition group”. Oddly the revelations that seemed to most fascinate the media was the dictator’s itune downloads which included Harry Potter movies and cheesy pop music.

The cheese bit back when John Oliver invited one of the favored bands, Right Said Fred, on his show Last Week Tonight and they performed a parody “You’re too awful for this earth” to the tune of their hit I’m Too Sexy.

Enjoy the clip but be warned, like the original, this tune will get stuck in your head and you’ll find yourself humming “You’re an asshole. An asshole. Everyone thinks you’re an asshole!” for days.

Lyrics:

YOU’RE TOO AWFUL FOR THIS EARTH
TOO AWFUL FOR THIS EARTH
SO AWFUL IT HURTS
YOUR FACE BARELY HAS A CHIN
IT BARELY HAS A CHIN
YOU LOOK JUST LIKE HIM…
