(Newser) – Is it possible Julian Assange is suffering from a touch of cabin fever after being cooped up in an Ecuadorian embassy for over a year? The Wikileaks founder, who is running for a Senate seat in Australia's upcoming election, has appeared in a satirical rap video by online comedy series Juice Rap News, the Huffington Post reports. The video starts as a Game of Thrones spoof, mocking Aussie politics' major players, but the real Assange appears around the 3:45 mark, at which point he dons a mullet wig and "sings" a parody of the '80s Australian hit "You're the Voice" by John Farnham (sample lyrics: "Oh, we're all wire-tapped now, we're all being fed lies.") You can hear the original song here for reference. (Read more Julian Assange stories.)
