London Mayor Boris Johnson sends out a clear message about the Olympic Games in this video – but probably not one of which sensitive sponsors would approve.

Video splice experts Cassette Boy have created a clip starring Johnson that takes a swipe at the Games themselves, east London and corporate sponsorship.

Star Johnson talks about the upcoming “shocking and depraved” Games in a distinctly off-message way.

London’s Mayor warns that spectators will be eaten by bears if they fail to munch enough McDonald’s’ burgers.

The biggest McDonald’s burger bar in the world has been built inside the Olympic Park.

Elsewhere in the clip, east London is smeared as a place of “mud, illiteracy and embarrassing diseases.”

And the capital city’s first citizen also presents an alternative opening ceremony, one featuring “whitened bones, horses’ heads and the skulls of men nailed to trees.”

The montage has been stitched together from footage of Johnson on TV by Cassette Boy - who are masters of the splicing genre.

We advise you take a look at this splice of subversive fun soon, in case Olympics enforcement officials swoop to pull it out of the public domain.
