Labor MP gives bizarre rendition of Muppet Show song

Labor MP Julian Hill has opened the parliament week by bizarrely trying out a reworked version of The Muppet Show theme song.

The term 'muppets' has been thrown around like never before in Australian culture.

After Prime Minister Scott Morrison declared the curtains had come down on The Muppet Show last week following the bitter leadership spill, it's been in the news time and time again.

And it went to another bizarre level when Labor MP Julian Hill arrived in Canberra for the new sitting week.

Mr Hill fronted reporters outside parliament on Monday by reciting lyrics to The Muppet Show's opening theme song, with some minor changes.

"Why do we always come here? I really just don't know," the first-term MP for the Melbourne seat of Bruce said.

"It's like a kind of torture to have to watch their show."

The spiel lasted barely a minute, before he immediately walked away to head through security into parliament, taking no questions and leaving everyone in attendance stunned.
