Teenager pranks Nigel Farage with selfie video ‘for his mum’

Wil Jones

Farage didn’t look too pleased

A teenager in Plymouth has captured himself playing a prank on Nigel Farage, giving him the middle finger in a selfie video.

16-year-old Robin Marshall approached the Brexit Party leader at Valenti’s Gelato on Plymouth Hoe, and asked him to record a video for his supposedly hardline-leaver mum.

“Hi Katy, here with your lad,” Farage says hopefully into the cameraphone. “I hope you’re going to vote for the Brexit party.”

While he’s saying this, Robin is sticking his middle finger right in Nigel Farage’s face.

Farage does not look to please when he looks up, and in footage from a different angle is seen continuing to grimace.

“I couldn’t believe it, he said he had a surprise for me and I thought it was going to be something nice. I was not expecting that,” Robin’s Mum Katy told Plymouth Live.

“I hate Nigel Farage so it wasn’t a nice surprise, Robin feels the same so he knew exactly what he was doing. He is such a prankster so I wasn’t surprised. He just pretended he had a nice treat for me.”

She also made Robin clarify on Twitter that she is not a Brexit fanatic or a Nigel Farage superfan.
