YouTubers Project 'Boris Johnson Is A Wet Wipe' Onto Houses Of Parliament
| Last updated
Yes, that's right, this is the level of political discourse that we've arrived at in 2021.
To be fair, it's an opinion held by many people, so perhaps it's best that it is represented alongside all the others.
Admittedly, not that many contrasting opinions have been seen in gigantic illuminated letters on the UK's seat of government.
Regardless of what you believe, it is a fairly impressive and grand stunt to pull. The production values have to be admired as well.
Boris Johnson is a big fan of writing large short slogans onto things and standing by them, so perhaps - even though it's a big dig in his direction - he's got a grudging respect for Zac Alsop and Jamie Rawsthorne.
The pair run a channel which sees them present the imaginatively titled The Zac and Jay Show for their 772,000 subscribers.
You'd have to imagine they'll pick up a few other followers after this stunt.
Unveiling their handiwork on Twitter, Rawsthorne wrote: "You're welcome, British public."
His colleague added: "Boris is a wet wipe pass it on."
While the Prime Minister was obviously popular enough to win a general election pretty handily in the past few years, the court of opinion on Twitter seems to side with the two YouTubers.
One person joked: "Sorry, but a wet wipe is useful."
Another said: "Wet wipe evokes a sense of being overly cautious, hyper-sensitive & lacking in gumption.
"This is a totally inadequate description of Johnson."
A third said: "All the people crying over the 'Boris Johnson is a wet wipe' projection need to get a grip, if he doesn't like it he shouldn't be such a massive wet wipe."
However, in the interests of balance - and because their opinion is valid as well - there are others who don't agree with the sentiments, particularly because - if you remember - London and the whole of the UK are supposed to be in lockdown.
Of course, they'd probably call this a work engagement, given that they are professional YouTubers.
One such person wrote: "Isn't this immature and illegal?"
They then added: "It is illegal the last I check [sic] you cannot shine a large amount of light onto a building especially government property and the fact im pretty sure wet wipe is an insult here that also would come down under another legislation, if im correct it's called artificial light nuisance."
Not sure any of us had 'artificial light nuisance' in the sweepstake, but it's a cracking name for a band.
