Watch newsreader’s deadpan delivery as he reveals teenager ‘Deez Nuts’ is running for president
This is the hilarious moment a newsreader is forced to keep a straight face as he announces that a presidential candidate going by the name of ‘Deez Nuts’ is polling at 9% in the race for the White House.
Earlier this week it was announced that the bizarrely named campaigner, running as an independent, had snatched 9% in the North Carolina polls, while Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump polled 38% and 40% respectively.
The clip has been watched more than 37,000 times since it was uploaded to YouTube by Zachary Miles earlier this week.
In the footage, the newsreader explains that Deez Nuts has also almost reached double figures in Minnesota and Iowa too – and sometime he manages to do it all without bursting into laughter.
In fact, Deez Nuts is actually a 15-year-old schoolboy named Brady Olsen, who isn’t even old enough to vote yet.
His policies include balanced budgets, against illegal immigration, for gay marriage and against oil subsidies.
When Rolling Stone magazine asked Brady why he decided to run for president, he simply replied: “Because I really didn’t want to see Clinton, Bush or Trump in the White House, so I guess I’m trying to put up a fight.”
When asked why he thinks he’s qualified to be a president, Brady, who lives in Iowa, replied: “The fact that if I can fill out a form so vague that it doesn’t include your age, or the fact that all get accepted even if they’re only partially filled, anyone can run.”
Brady also says that he will take the joke “as far as America wants to”.
