In a hilarious satirical video, Australian comedians dressed as doctors, nurses and more have come together to make fun of the anti-lockdown protestors who stormed Sydney’s streets on the weekend.
The video opens to inspirational, tinkly piano music and comedian Greta Lee Jackson, who posted the video on TikTok.
Over the music, she says: “Hi, I’m Greta Lee Jackson, and I didn’t go to the protests. But these people did – and seeing their bravery and determination to fight for our freedom is really getting us through.”
The video then switches to a man in a doctor’s uniform, who says, “I’ve been holding the hands of people as they die, because their families aren’t allowed to visit them, because the disease is so infectious. But a small price to pay, because these guys don’t want to wear a mask.”
Next, a woman in a nurse’s uniform says, “I care for vulnerable people, and I thought their lives were important. Turns out the right to fire twirl is more important.”
The video continues in similarly biting fashion. We won’t spoil the rest, but watch it down below.

The video currently has 29.9 thousand likes on TikTok, and more than a thousand comments.
One user wrote: “careful, their IQs may not be high enough to process the information and think they’re being praised.”
Another wrote, “please tell me this is an ad and it will be everywhere…please…”
Perhaps this group of comedians is key to making a good vaccine ad, too.
