Boxing: Joseph Parker shines again in celebrity ensemble social-media isolation video

Kiwi boxer Joseph Parker is the driving force behind another piece of isolation social media magic.

The former WBO heavyweight champion has teamed up with fellow NZ sports star Scott Dixon, heavyweight boxing king Tyson Fury and others in an ensemble lip-sync rendition of The Foundations' 1968 hit song 'Build Me Up Buttercup'.

The clip, originally posted on Parker's Instagram, starts with the talented pugilist showing off his musical prowess on both the guitar and piano.

The video takes its inspiration from the 1998 hit movie There's Something About Mary, with Parker and friends jumping into dance and lip-sync mode.

The other celebrities involved include league star George Burgess, Six60 singer Matiu Walters and iconic boxing announcer Michael Buffer from his plush Las Vegas home.

"Remember to stay in contact with your family and friends, and build each other up in these difficult times," Parker wrote.

The post comes just days after the Aucklander went viral with his re-enactment of Hugh Grant's 'Dancing Prime Minister' scene from the movie Love Actually.

Both videos were put together by Parker's videographer, Kerry Russell.

Parker continues to train hard while in lockdown, thanks to a world-class gym at his Auckland residence.

An all-New Zealand showdown against Junior Fa is reportedly in the pipeline, once the COVID-19 outbreak subsides.
