In 1991, the American alternative rock band R.E.M. released the hit song "Losing My Religion."

Nearly 30 years later, the song was used by the British website Joe in a viral video that has been seen over a half a million times.

"That's me and corona," the song began. "That's me in the spotlight abusing my position."

"Trying to blame Chinese flu. And I don't care if you have caught it," the song continued. "Oh no, I've said too much -- f*cked it up."

"I thought that I heard you coughing. I thought that I heard you wheeze. I think I let the old folks die," the song ended.

The parody paid tribute to the iconic music video, with added touches like a bottle of bleach.
