This is my original tweet. Took me about 15 mins to make one lunchtime as a joke to my half dozen or so followers. But then it went a bit viral. There’s over a million views on my own timeline plus at least another 4million on various other people who stole it on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and tiktok without credit haha

    For those who aren’t British and don’t necessarily “get” the joke, it’s our Prime Minister awkwardly cheering on England scoring a goal against Germany but the screen is replaced by cctv footage of a recently disgraced cabinet minister who was coughs snogging an aide. The joke is that “he scored” has a double meaning.

    Had I known it would go viral I’d have put in a bit more effort into the quad warp. Also I’d have added some sort of watermark.

    edited with Hitfilm pro but an old version from 2018/9. I don’t think I used anything that isn’t possible in the latest version of Express though.

    It's well timed, and simple, which are often the best. See if you can get an interview I on the BBC or such. Bet you could.

    I’ve now joined the ranks of “who did this” creators. 😂
