Wikileaks founder Julian Assange guest-starred in a satirical music video (he shows up around 3:30) and parodied an Australian '80s pop hit... while wearing a mullet.

The video, which parodies the upcoming Australian federal elections, is the latest in a series of comedic rap commentaries from Aussie duo Juice Rap News.

Assange's portion of the video was filmed at the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where he has been living since June 2012 in order to avoid extradition from Britain to Sweden.

And then it gets really weird, as Assange begins to "sing" a parody of John Farnham's 1986 hit "You're the Voice," with new, Wikileaks-themed lyrics.

BONUS: Here's a video of Julian Assange dancing.
