When it's all said and done, Australian pop star Sia's "Chandelier" will end up being one of the biggest pop anthems of 2014 - following Taylor Swift's "Shake it Off" of course.

Naturally, in the age of the Internet - one where people have far too much time on their hands - the song has been parodied, remixed, altered, etc. The latest remix of the single comes in the form of an edited video which, according to YouTube, was produced Evyatar Halimi and Israeli news portal Walla.

The video takes various voice clippings from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, which, when put together, finds the illustrious Bibi singing the lyrics to "Chandelier."

Of course, as we all know the song, this entails listening to Bibi talk about how much he enjoys drinking, life, and "swinging" from chandeliers.

“I’m the one for a good time,” says Netanyahu in a monotone voice. “I’m gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier, I’m gonna live like tomorrow doesn’t exist,” he says. “Like it doesn’t exist.”
