Don't want to answer questions? Do the Chicken Dance

Ray Stevens' bizarre response to a series of questions from a reporter.

GOLD Coast MP Ray Stevens is pretty crap at the chicken dance.

And answering questions.

But he certainly gave Queensland's super dull election campaign a laugh.

Mr Stevens was filmed at a Coast polling booth arguing with a website editor who questioned his role in the $100 million cable car development proposed for the Gold Coast.

The heated encounter shows Mr Stevens dancing like a bird and refusing to answer questions.

It was posted on YouTube and the clip went viral late yesterday.

Already there have been remixes with music to the Chicken Dance.

Independent Australia editor David Donovan had asked Mr Stevens why he was refusing to release correspondence with the Integrity Commissioner about his involvement in Gold Coast Skyride.

The Commission cleared Mr Stevens of a conflict of interest over his role in the project.

The Gold Coast Bulletin has been questioning Mr Stevens about his involvement with Gold Coast Skyride for 84 days, without success.

Premier Campbell Newman backed Mr Stevens after seeing the video, saying he was a 'great bloke' who worked hard for the local community.

"It's pretty funny though, I've got to say, a bit odd and perhaps a lot of people out there will set the video to some music."
