Newzoids: Trump Sings ‘Pratt Out Of Hell’

October 10, 2016

After Donald Trump’s latest misogynist comment about grabbing women by their private parts, and the attempt by the Fuhrage to explain it away as simple alpha male speech – which only makes it worse, when you think about it – the satirical ITV puppet show, Newzoids, parodied him as Meatloaf, singing ‘Pratt out of Hell’. He also sings a line from one of Meatloaf’s other hits, rendered as ‘I would do anything for votes’. But he lives out ‘but I won’t do that’, as obviously, there’s precious little that Trump won’t do for votes.

He’s also got a chorus of Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton and Obama, who are quite horrific warmongers in their own right, though the parody doesn’t cover their wars of terror in aid of compliant Fascist dictatorships. This may well be because Hillary has corporate backing, while Trump doesn’t.

Even so, this is hilarious, and recalls some of the best musical parodies by the late, lamented Spitting Image. Enjoy!
