During a live interview with ABC News on the impact of a carbon tax on the South Australian mining town of Whyalla, MP Craig Emerson, the Australian Minister for Trade and Competitiveness, took off singing the 1975 Horror Movie song by Australian bank Skyhooks using his own lyrics and showing off his dance moves.  This outbreak was done in response to the opposition leader Tony Abbott's claim that the tax which forces the biggest polluters, to pay AUS$23 (£15) per metric ton of carbon dioxide emitted, will "wipe the town off the map" if implemented.
