Screengrab Twitter Scott Morrison getting Coalition MPs to raise their hands

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has apologised for tweeting a video of Question Time cut to a portion of Fatman Scoop's iconic track Be Faithful.

'As an American, I have to be APOLITICAL because I don't know the politics, but I can say this, it's a humbling experience to be recognized by a high official'.

While it is unlikely Morrison would have played any role in choosing the soundtrack or even considering what goal the clip might have served, the freakish post will raise questions about his staffing arrangements and if his team is equipped for the job of working in the Prime Minister's office following his sudden promotion to the job.

Morrison is shown raising his hand and members of the Liberal party raise theirs in return.

'We're just trying to connect honestly with people and some of the narcs will get a bit worked up about this sort of thing'.

Given that "Be Faithful" also features lyrics like "Who fuckin' tonight?".

Rapper Fatman Scoop is heard exclaiming: "You got a hundred dollar bill, get your hands up!"

'You got a fifty dollar bill, get your hands up! "You gotta ten dollar bill put your hands up".

The clip was accompanied by a caption that read (and I apologise in advance for this): "QT was on fire today", followed by the fire emoji.

We get it guys, you make way to much money for doing very little work.

Fatman Scoop responded via Instagram on Friday night.

The suggestive lyrics were not included in the brief video, but the full song contains six uses of the word "f**k". When I found out, I asked the team to take it down.

However, the other lyrics of the song proved contentious.

Social media users were quick to reply and slam Mr Morrison for his tweet.
