'Yackety Sax' becomes the soundtrack to Boris Johnson's resignation

(SOUNDBITE OF BOOTS RANDOLPH'S "YAKETY SAX"

LEILA FADEL, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Leila Fadel. Best known as the theme for "The Benny Hill Show," this became a soundtrack yesterday for U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson's resignation. After a suggestion in a tweet from actor Hugh Grant, a protester played "Yakety Sax" on a portable speaker while members of Parliament were interviewed.

UNIDENTIFIED MP: Nobody has obviously formally declared to that yet. Sorry about the noise here.

FADEL: A goofy note to play the PM out on. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
