One of the many fall-outs of the US presidential elections this year has been the barrage of memes, jokes and spoofs to have hit the online space. Be it Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton (both of whom weren’t precisely the most popular candidates from either party in US history), or even everyone’s favourite Barack Obama.
Well, post-elections, there are absolutely no signs that the trend will stop either. In fact, it’s just gaining more traction, especially since we’re all gearing up Christmas and the Holiday Season. The Christmas ads have started coming in, and even those aren’t immune from the US elections.
Take the latest ad from British department store chain John Lewis that stars Buster the Boxer. It hadn’t been long since the launch of the controversial ad (which some have said is ruining Christmas for them), that a UK-based video outfit pulled off a brilliant US presidential election spoof on it.
In the spoof, Barack Obama is seen toiling to make sure his kid, Hillary Clinton, gets the trampoline, aka White House. An excited Clinton wakes up on Christmas morning, jumps out of bed and out into the courtyard to check out her Christmas present, only to find that someone else beat her to it. Guess who?! The expressions that follow are priceless!
For those who have been supporting Clinton’s candidacy in the US elections, the result was nothing less than shocking. In fact, soon after Donald Trump won, protests have been organised, and people began asking for a recount. Nevertheless, one thing is constant – the memes and jokes continue to rule social media, and we’re sure there will be more such parody videos coming our way. So watch this space.
