Shake it off: Watch Tony Abbott deal with criticism the Taylor Swift way

With low approval ratings for his government and his own party MPs thinking of an alternate leadership, Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott has been in the eye of the storm over the last few months.

Financial Review, as recently as Tuesday, had reported, "Mr Abbott, conscious he is surviving from poll to poll, has embarked on a strategy of crash or crash through, telling those close to him his only option is to keep governing and hope he can re-engage with voters."

This comes even as coalition MPs in returned to the Australian parliement realising that if they want to win the next elections, they need to find someone else.

Abbott, however, is living in oblivion. And a video doing the rounds of the internet captures the situation, mocking the prime minister for his denial. And what better song to go with it than Taylor Swift's 'Shake it off', where the lyrics "Can't stop, won't stop moving/ It's like I got this music
In my mind/ Saying, "It's gonna be alright."

The hilarious animated video shows an almost naked Abbott 'shaking off' all the criticism that comes his way. The video has made use of news headlines like 'one of the world's most unpopular PMs' to 'Poll gives Abbott record low approval rating' describing really how grave the situation is for the Australian Prime Minister.

And as Abbott chooses to tune out all the critism, the video depicting this situation in a comical fashion, is going viral.
