Tim Minchin Releases ‘I Still Call Australia Homophobic’ And It’s Glorious

Tim Minchin Releases ‘I Still Call Australia Homophobic’ And It’s Glorious

The Aussie comedian, actor, writer, musician and director has never mess around with his words; it's kind of how he created a career. He dives head first into social taboos and while there is a huge comedy element to his craft, the 41-year-old hopes that people get the underlying message.

While he usually dons heavy eye makeup, wild hair and a crisp suit, the Minchin toned it all down for a new song about the current issue of same-sex marriage. The postal vote on the plebiscite has drawn heavy criticism and much has been said about the vote itself, so let's just focus on the song.

He kicks off the tune with the same opening words as the original, the ones we all know and love. But then he sticks in a zinger by saying: "No matter how far, or how wide I roam, I still call Australia hom......ophobic."

He continues: "I'm always travelling, but wherever I stay; people love Aussies and they always generally say, they think we're kind, fun and funny, tall, tanned and toned, and a little bit racist, and a little bit hom......ophobic."

But he saves his best savagery for the next verse. He sings: "It's bad enough, these pollie arseholes pass discriminatory laws; now we're forced to dance the plebiscite jig. But on the upside this plebiscite might enlighten us, at least we'll know exactly how many Aussies are bigoted c**ts. Yay stats."

The video has been viewed nearly four million times and liked by more than 90,000 people.

During the song, Tim acknowledges that the majority of Australians are supportive of changing the Marriage Act to allow same-sex couple to marry. At the end of the video, the comedian issues a plea to all Australians, saying: "I think the proposed plebiscite on marriage equality is noxious and obnoxious.

"If the horrid thing goes ahead, let's drown the mofos in 'Yes' votes. The condescending shits think by making it postal, young people won't vote. Prove them wrong."
