Dermot and Dave have given Eurovision the parody treatment - and it's spot on!

The Today FM duo filmed a video for their song 'Touch Me' complete with subtitles for the hilarious lyrics.

"We start this song with a quiet bit / makes you wonder if it's going to speed up / Yes it is.  NOW!" stars Dermot.

Dave continues, "You weren't expecting this / it's folk music mixed with hardcore trance / I'm wearing leather trousers / but I'm doing a traditional dance."

Check it out in all its glory below.  And scroll down for the original on which it's based - Azerbaijan's 2009 entry 'Always' from Aysel and Arash.

Not sure which one we prefer!
