Infamous Australian comedy group The Chaser have flown to the top of the charts with an obscene remix of Scott Morrison‘s speeches.

The satirical track titled ‘Coal Makes Me C**’ reached the number one slot on Tuesday night, just 24 days out from the federal election.

The Chaser team said the whole thing started as a ‘silly joke’ and that they had no idea the tune would become so popular.

The song saga started when the group shared a funny mash-up of Scott Morrison’s words to their Reddit page and one fan saw the potential for a hit. 

‘The whole thing started out as just a silly joke video where we cut up Scott Morrison’s words to make him say some dumb things,’ explained one of the Chaser team Caz Smith. 

‘But when we uploaded that video to Reddit, one of the users on the site challenged us to remix that video into a song, and we stupidly took up the dare.’

The hit took off from there and the explicitly named song ‘Coal Makes Me C**’ was born.

‘It took an all-nighter, but we got the track out by midday the next day before crashing in bed. By the time we woke up, it had already gathered almost a million plays. It was going completely wild.’ 

A viral social media campaign saw #C**ToNumberOne trending on Twitter and the song reached number one in the music charts by late Tuesday night.

‘We did the maths and figured if we can get a million plays on Reddit, we can almost certainly get enough streams to enter the ARIA Top 40,’ explained The Chaser’s managing editor Charles Firth.

‘However, we were thinking it would take at least a week to get to that point. Turns out thanks to our fans we only needed about 48 hours to top the charts. We don’t know if that says more about how great our fans are or how useless the Australian music industry is.’

‘It’s amazing. At this rate, pretty soon we’ll have enough Spotify streams to afford a loaf of bread.’

The eccentric single is now available to stream on Apple Music, Spotify, and YouTube. 

Daily Mail Australia has contacted the Liberal Party for comment.

However the brazen track is far from The Chaser’s first political stunt.

Back in September of 2007 when important world leaders had gathered in Sydney for the APEC – Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation – and the NSW government was taking security seriously.

It had spent $170 million and passed a series of emergency laws to ensure the meeting would be safe but The Chaser crew took it as a challenge.

The Chaser made headlines in 2007 after one of their members dressed up as Osama bin Laden and attempted to enter the APEC meeting in Sydney

The group made a fake motorcade with one of their members dressed up as Osama bin Laden in the backseat.

The motorcade breezed past the first security checkpoint but stopped short of crossing the second after noting they’d ‘made it further than we ever thought we would’.

The men were arrested and removed from the event a short time later after getting out of their vehicles and talking to security.

The comedy group describes itself as a ‘satirical media empire which rivals Rupert Murdoch‘s News Corporation in all fields except power, influence, popularity and profitability’.
