‘At Home With Tone’ takes second crack at PM

Tony Abbott web satire ‘At Home With Tone’ has taken another satirical stab at Australia’s prime minister with its second episode, titled ‘When the cat’s away the mouse will play…’

• ‘At home with Tone’ episode one

Allowing the world a rare insight into Mr Abbott’s world, the four-minute clip opens with the Prime Minister of Australia, played by Jonas Holt, running around the house like Home Alone’s Kevin McCallister in a Risky Business get-up.

Abbott stares sadly at a near-empty box of Favourites Chocolates and says “there has been a real holocaust in this box of chocolates”, a reference to a comment the real Tony Abbott made in parliament last week (he quickly apologised and retracted the statement).

The second episode centres around Tony Abbott calling the heir apparent to the Liberal Party leadership, Malcolm Turnbull (“come on Tone, you can do this, just call him, you are still his boss”), because his internet connection isn’t quick enough for him to watch Christopher Pyne drop the c-bomb on national TV.

And yes, the haunting laugh is back.
