Scott Brown’s staff said he misspoke in an interview.

The Massachusetts Democratic Party released a video ­Friday showing four previous ­examples of US Senator Scott Brown saying he met with “kings and queens.”

Set to the tune of ABBA’s “Dancing Queen,” the video was released in an e-mail that noted that it “shows Brown making the claim in Wakefield, on ­Martha’s Vineyard, the ­Berkshires, and in Sandwich on the campaign trail.”

In a radio interview Thursday, Brown said that during his time as a US senator he had met with kings and queens.

His staff was quick to ­acknowledge that the comment was a flub and that the senator has not ­actually met with royalty.

“He misspoke when he said kings and queens,” Brown spokesman Colin Reed said in a statement Thursday.

State Democratic Party spokesman Matt House said that Friday’s video was a compilation of footage shot by the party’s tracker since last summer.

House offered another video example from 2010, when Brown made similar comments outside a Quincy diner while campaigning with congressional candidate Jeff Perry.

The Brown campaign did not respond Friday to a request for comment on the footage ­released by the rival party.
