Who Knew Dua Lipa's "Hallucinate" and the BBC News Theme Would Be the Perfect Party Mash-Up?
Over the past couple of months, the internet has become our communication lifeline and main source of entertainment. But among the endless barrage of news, the collective lockdown boredom has produced some truly cackle-worthy content. This morning, we're obsessed with a mashup of Dua Lipa's "Hallucinate" and the BBC News theme, and yep, you read that correctly. Spoiler alert: it's a bloody banger.
It seems that people have fallen a little bit in love with the BBC News theme over the past months, with Twitter and TikTok users posting at-home dance parties to the song. Next, Owain Wyn Evans (aka the "unapologetically flamboyant drumming BBC weatherman") took working from home to a whole new level by enthusiastically drumming the theme. Now, Dua Lipa has been given the BBC News theme treatment, courtesy of Ben Howell — we'll honestly be playing this bop on repeat all day long. Ahead, see a few of our favourite BBC News theme remixes.
