Once-upon-a-time pop sensation (and deputy prime minister) Nick Clegg is not planning on releasing his music video, and people are not happy.

So perturbed are they, a petition has been launched calling on Clegg to release the spoof he made.

"We would like Nick Clegg to release the spoof of Carly Rae Jepson's "I really like you" music video that he made ahead of the election," the organisers wrote.

"The past few months have been pretty awful in the world of British politics and everyone could do with some quality cheering up. This is genuinely something Mr Clegg could do to boost the morale of the nation."

In the build up to the general election, Clegg spent almost £8,000 to imitate the music video in a bid to "go viral".

The video, first revealed by The Times, saw Clegg imitate the role of Tom Hanks in a Carly Rae Jepsen music video.

Insiders have said the video will never be seen.
