Scott Morrison, who has only been in the top job for three weeks, put the 11-second clip online showing MPs raising their hands during question time on Thursday.

"It's a humbling experience to be recognised by a high official (either Scott or his people thought of me)".

Mr Morrison's choice for the Wentworth candidate was roundly rejected and instead the party chose David Sharma, who was supported by Mr Turnbull and former prime minister John Howard.

But others dismissed such criticism as overblown, or saw a fun side.

Mr Morrison accepted the invitation on Twitter and said he was "definitely keen".

'We're just trying to connect honestly with people and some of the narcs will get a bit worked up about this sort of thing'.

The clip was accompanied by a caption that read (and I apologise in advance for this): "QT was on fire today", followed by the fire emoji. / You got a twenty dollar bill, get your hands up!


We get it guys, you make way to much money for doing very little work.

Rapper Fatman Scoop. He released his 1999 hit Be Faithful in collaboration with The Crooklyn Clan.

The clip was deleted and Mr Morrison tweeted: "The full lyrics of the song used in my earlier video from QT today were just not OK".

"I think people think Australians think politicians can take themselves a bit too seriously at times".

The section posted on Mr Morrison's social media accounts was not explicit: "You got a hundred dollar bill, get your hands up!"

Another user chose to also get creative and use the lyrics to the song and ask his own question.
