David Cameron’s Facebook Movie

Some of the Prime Minister’s “key moments” since 2010 are celebrated in a new Facebook-style compilation from the Labour Party

Some of the Prime Minister’s “key moments” since 2010 are celebrated in a new Facebook-style compilation from the Labour Party…

While applying ‘likes’ and ‘dislikes’ to party politics might suggest a rather simplistic approach, this spoof video hits the mark pretty well.

Soundtracked by a well chosen and whimsical piano track, A Look Back at a Tory Government features photos spotlighting several moments from the coalition’s years in power.

From “your first moments” and “your most unliked posts” to a brilliant “photos you’ve shared” gallery of shame (George Osborne is very much ‘that guy’ here), the film apes the tone of Facebook movies very convincingly.

It also ends nicely with a block of FB photos recreating Ed Miliband’s observation last week that the coalition front bench was an all male bastion. And then, well, there’s a big ‘thumbs down’. Not exactly subtle, but quite amusing nonetheless.
