Jacinda Ardern Went On Twitch To Learn Wood Carving, Because What Can’t She Do
And onto the list of totally normal 2020 things: New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern talking about KFC emojis on Twitch.
The New Zealand Prime Minister, and a walking reminder for many of what life with competent management looks like, casually jumped onto a Twitch stream today. You know, as most heads of state tend to do.
Broxh’s stream has been a wholesome force for many stuck in isolation over the last few months, and he was more than happy to take the New Zealand Prime Minister through the basics.
“Can we get hypes in the chat for the Prime Minister, please,” the Maori carver asked.
It’s wild watching this from Australia, a country that shares so much in common with New Zealand and yet is so regressive in so many ways. Just the principle of Australian legislators even thinking about Twitch is cringeworthy, let alone them leveraging Twitch chat for insults.
Then again, Jacinda Ardern has always been streets ahead of other world leaders when it comes to getting it. Can you imagine if she’d been in charge of the NBN?
Also, there’s just something incredibly wholesome about Twitch chat calling their Prime Minister “Aunty”. It’s certainly a lot more cheerful than what’d happen if Australia’s Prime Minister popped up.
