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...
“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”
“Go f**k yourself”
