Watch: Julian Assange raps

Pin it

So there's this Australian show called Rap News, which is exactly what it sounds like it is. The online-only program delivers current-events analysis through the magic of hip-hop.

And when they decided to chronicle the WikiLeaks saga, they got none other than Julian Assange to guest rap. His brief cameo begins five minutes into the video below, but it's all so hypnotically bizarre that you'll probably find yourself watching the whole damn thing. 

Between these Australian wackos and those Taiwanese animated-news videos, Americans should be that much more thankful for The Daily Show.
