Apparently, British anti-mask activists are resorting to the power of art to ridicule the reinstated regulations in an eccentric manner.
An unexpected attack on the newly brought in mask rules came from Britain, where Piers Corbyn filmed a bizarre clip to protest against face coverings. The clip shows Corbyn and his supporters singing on the London Underground, with lyrics saying that "wearing a mask is like trying to keep a fart in your trousers". It also has the slogan "Resist, Defy, do not Comply".
It is unclear who wrote the song, but Corbyn can be seen - at one point excitedly waving his arms like a conductor.
The video attracted a backlash on Twitter, with netizens bemused by the video's surreal style and hurling insults at Corbyn for the song.
