English actor and Lord of the Rings trilogy star Andy Serkis has delivered another jab at Brexit’s chief architect, UK Prime Minister Theresa May, via a hilarious video he recently uploaded on social media.
The skit, titled "Latest Leak From 10 Downing St…", once again features Serkis adopting the "Gollum-May" persona he came up with in his previous vid, singing a parody of Queen’s hit Bohemian Rhapsody.
"Was that the right deal? Or was that just fantasy? Are we stuck in the Union? No article fif-a-ty?" he sings in the voice of the Lord of the Rings character.
This time, the video contains less references to J.R.R. Tolkien’s work and instead focuses on "May" narrating her Brexit-related woes, also poking at political figures like David Cameron, Boris Johnson, Michael Gove and Jeremy Corbyn.
"No one really matters to me", Gollum-May sings while cradling her copy of the Brexit deal as the video draws to a close.
The video elicited a round of virtual applause and quite a lot of hearty laughter on social media.
Brilliant and a little scary.🤔— ❌GuitarBear #QisLegit.⭐️⭐️⭐️ (@guitar_bear) 17 января 2019 г.
In December, Serkis presented his first parody video featuring the Gollum-May character, a shout-out to a famous scene from The Two Towers where Gollum’s personalities were arguing about what to do with the hobbits and their "precious" ring.
