Kildare TD’s Back to the Future-themed election video is dividing opinion

This Kildare South TD is hoping his election video has the required special effect on voters as he seeks re-election in February’s General Election.

TD Martin Heydon is hoping for a repeat of 2011 as he goes Back to the Future in search of re-election votes.

Heydon chooses not to break into song in his spoof of the 1980s classic, taking a rather different approach to Fianna Fail’s Michael Healy-Rae.

The Facebook reaction to Heydon’s attempt to rack up votes on his personal page ranged from laughing emoticons and thumbs up...

 “Brilliant Martin!!”

“Hahaha this is great”

“PMSL Martin! Good to see a politician with a sense of humour!”

To some less pleasant comments...

“Jesus just when I thought our government couldn't make themselves look any more stupid than they already are! You're running in the country's elections for God sake”

“Cringe”

“Gobshite”

“Go f**k yourself”
