ONLINE bookmaker SportsBet has injected some fun into an otherwise dull election campaign with their video Political Parties We Wish Existed.

The two minute video features eight parties that would quite possibly have a good chance at winning a seat if they were to run on July 2.

From man flu to hippie kale lovers, the real issues that face the Australian public today all feature prominently.

"Democracy has gone crazy around the world from Brexit to Donald Trump so these parties may seem hilarious but are they really that farfetched?" SportsBet's Will Byrne said.
