It's been just over a month since he impersonated Prime Minister Theresa May as his legendary Lord of the Rings character Gollum, and now Andy Serkis is back with another video on the subject of Brexit. But this time there's another impression thrown into the mix; Freddie Mercury.

Ahead of May's confidence vote yesterday (January 16), which she somehow miraculously managed to survive by the skin of her teeth thanks only to the DUP, the actor recorded a parody version of Queen classic Bohemian Rhapsody featuring a video made up news clips, shots from the House of Commons, scenes from Lord of the Rings and snippets of the original Andy Serkis video.

"Was that the right deal? Or was that just fantasy? Are we stuck in the union? No article fif-a-ty?" He sings.

"Open your eyes, did you notice the lies or see? / I'm just Theresa, I need your sympathy."

The song mentions various politicians including former Prime Minister David Cameron ("David! I just switched to leave / Undermined all that I said, the people's will put that to bed"), Boris Johnson ("Boris! Oooh! Didn't mean to make you cry"), Michael Gove ("Goodbye, everybody, I've got to go / Got to leave you all behind with Michael Gove"), Nigel Farage ("Bee-bee-cee-one can you keep Farage away from me?"), Jacob Rees-Mogg ("I see a skinny silhouetto of a man / Jacob Rees, Jacob Rees! Will you set up a new quango?"), Katie Hopkins ("Katie Hopkins! Let us go!") and Jeremy Corbyn ("Jezzer Bernie Corbyn very, very frightening me").

Other cameos in the video were Donald Trump, and even Danny Dyer mid-rant on Good Evening Britain when he called Cameron a "t**t" in front of Corbyn. There's also reference to the "stupid woman" vs. "stupid people" fiasco, as well as political debate show Question Time.

It's the light relief we needed after such an intense few days following May's Brexit deal defeat, a deal that was rejected by 432 votes to 202. We were almost facing a general election, which would no doubt throw British politics into further turmoil. Unless, of course, we vote Gollum as Prime Minister.

Full lyrics:

Was that the right deal? Or was that just fantasy?

Are we stuck in the union? No article fif-a-ty?

Open your eyes, did you notice the lies or see?

I'm just Theresa, I need your sympathy

Because I'm in the dark, still don't know,

Have no clue who's friends or foe

Any way the vote goes doesn't really matter to me (to me)

David! I just switched to leave

Undermined all that I said, the people's will put that to bed

David! I was sure we'd won

But now that's changed I'm Brexit all the way

Boris! Oooh! Didn't mean to make you cry

If I'm not back for Question Time tomorrow

Carry on, carry on as if no one really matters

Too late, the people's vote has come

Sends shivers down my spine, junkers delaying all the time

Goodbye, everybody, I've got to go

Got to leave you all behind with Michael Gove

Boris! Oooh! (Any way the vote goes)

I don't want to lie

I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all

I see a skinny silhouetto of a man

Jacob Rees, Jacob Rees! Will you set up a new quango?

Jezzer Bernie Corbyn very, very frightening me

Immigration (stupid woman), immigration (stupid people), immigration keep it low

Michael Gove! (Gove, Gove Gove)

I'm just Theresa, nobody loves me

She's just Theresa from the nasty party

Spare her the stress of this article fifty

Leavers here, leavers go, will you let us go?

Remainers! No, we will not let you go!

(Let us go!) Remainers! We will not let you go!

(Let us go!) Remainers! We will not let you go!

(Let us go!)

(Let us go!)

No! No! No! Never! No!

No! No! No! No! No!

Katie Hopkins! Katie Hopkins!

Katie Hopkins! Let us go!

Bee-bee-cee-one can you keep Farage away from me? From me? From meeeeeeee?

So you think you elect me to spit in my eye?

So you think you can vote leave and question me why?

Oh, people, can't do this to me, people

Just Brexit out, just Brexit right out of here.

Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh!

Ooh! Ooh! Ooooooh!

Nothing really matters

Anyone can see

No one really matters

No one really matters to me

(Any way the vote goes...)
