On Friday (July 22) Cassetteboy dropped their latest comedy rework which cleverly plays around with the Paul Woolford and Pessto track ‘Can You Pay’.
In classic Casetteboy style, this rework is a political jab which is directly aimed at Boris Johnson. The comedy producers edit Boris Johnson himself in a video admitting to all of his failures.

This track comes aptly in time with Johnson resigning as Prime Minister, and a leadership election taking place within the Conservative party for a new leader to be elected.
Each of the words from the Woolford track is said in this rework by Boris Johnson, by using snippets from his speeches and with the strung-together lyrics being references to Boris’ failures and scandals.
Some of the original wording has been changed to match the criticised actions taken by the British Prime Minister.
“I don’t pay my wallpaper bills, I lie about work event bills,” Boris says in this mash-up, as a reference to Johnson using taxpayer money to pay for over £2000 of gold wallpaper for 10 Downing Street.
The track also makes note of the current leaders in the Conservative leadership race, with a line saying “Please don’t call the moving van, I’ll cling on while I can, I need every penny I can get, I’m not ready for Rishi or Truss just yet.”
In the backing music is a bouncy electronic beat with fast drums and a groovy rhythm, making this track ready to be played at house parties, pre-drinks or even the club this summer.
This track joins a slew of other political reworks by the comedy producers, including ‘Can’t Trust Me’ (reworking MC Hammer’s ‘Can’t Touch This’), and ‘Rage Against the Party Machine’ (reworking Rage Against the Machines’s ‘Killing In The Name Of’).
