It’s the Tony Abbott-Darude mash-up of your dreams

It’s the summer meme that keeps giving – and not even the PM is safe. The internet has been having a field day with a photo of Tony Abbott wearing fluoro speed dealer sunnies, so it was only a matter of time before some legend decided to combine it with Darude’s Sandstorm, which has been sweeping the internet thanks to Peking Duk’s unforgettable Stereo set.

Even old m8 Johnny Howard approves:

Darude is on the stacked Future Music lineup alongside the likes of Avicii and The Prodigy. He recently caught up with inthemix to chat about Sandstorm’s unexpected viral success. “I was weirded out by it at first,” he said. “I didn’t understand what was going on. It was strange. Now I’ve actually played a couple of gamer conferences, all related to that kind of stuff. I’m cool with that, I’m not going to be pissed off about someone spreading my name and the name of my track around, whether it’s a joke, or a meme, it works for me.” Full interview here.
