In the clip, Fry played the guitar as he sang the powerful parody, and since posting the clip to Twitter it has gone viral with over 28,000 likes and plenty of comments from people who to their surprise love the Celtic folk remix - and want it to be released on streaming platforms.
This is somehow an absolute bangerhttps://twitter.com/BigDirtyFry/status/1509945813698584580\u00a0\u2026
One person wrote: "Interviewer stops me in the street *excuse me what are you listening to?"
"When Liam says it - gibberish. When you sing it - wise, deep, beautiful, show stopping," another person said.
Someone else added: "Ok but why is this so haunting though?"
"Ok but why is this the best song I've heard all year?!" a fourth person commented.
The song has become such a viral sensation that it even received a radio play on BBC Radio 1 Breakfast with Greg James who said: "An absolute gem emerged from the Oscars last week," where he then played part of Payne's now-infamous interview.
"That was Liam Payne with his strange accent and a very, very funny comedian called Michael Fry who I love has taken Liam's awkwardness on the red carpet and turned it into... well, a song!"
James then played Fry's folk song, as he laughed and sang along to the track and at the end added: "That really should be my tune of the week this week shouldn't it? It's incredible."
Big thank you to @gregjames for the feature on Radio 1 this morning. One step closer to appearing on Live Loungepic.twitter.com/miCIPtNMqI
Liam Payne's comments on Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars being transformed into a Celtic folk song wasn't on our 2022 bingo card but we love to see it... and demand a full version on streaming platforms.
