Australian drug smuggler Schapelle Corby makes acting debut in brother's rap video

Convicted drug smuggler Schapelle Corby has tried her hand as an actor in her brother's first rap video. 

In the music video for the song 'Who You Know', the infamous 42-year-old plays a psychiatrist pretending to diagnose her brother with a range of mental illnesses. 

Corby's brother James Kisina lies on Corby's couch while rapping.

The lyrics of the song seem to reference Corby's criminal past, as her brother raps, "Who do you know behind bars made it this far?"

This line causes Corby to whip off her glasses while looking shocked. 

At the end of the song, Corby turns to her brother and tells him he "did great". 

"James, you did great. So we'll book you in for next Tuesday?" 

In a move that seems to be poking fun at her drug smuggling past, there is a boogie board propped up against the wall in Corby's psychiatrist office. 

This prop could be a nod to Corby's arrest in 2004 in which more than four kilograms of marijuana was found in her boogie board bag, in Denpasar Airport, Bali. 

Corby insisted the drugs had been planted, but this claim was dismissed, and the Australian was sentenced to 20 years in a Balinese prison. 

However, in 2014, Corby's sentenced was reduced to just nine years. She remained in Bali on parole and returned to Australia in May 2017. Corby still maintains she knew nothing about the drugs in her boogie board bag. 

Kisina, 32, has his own criminal history, including an arrest in relation to a home invasion in Brisbane in 2006. Kisina reportedly entered the home armed with a baseball bat and a machete.

Kisina claimed he was trying to obtain evidence from drug dealers that might clear Corby's name.

He was also caught up in Corby's infamous drug smuggling case, as he was the one who was caught by Balinese officers carrying the boogie board bag. 

When Kisina was asked to open the bag and reveal its contents, Corby reportedly stepped in, explaining the bag was hers.
