Pic: David Cameron stars in the funniest viral picture of the British election so far

Mash that face

Remember this iconic image?

The year was 2012, the picture was presidential, the moment was magic.

Obama had just won re-election and his official Twitter account tweeted this warm embrace between the President of the United States and his wife, Michelle.


Cut to 2015.

The Tories look to have blown all election opponents out of the water, David Cameron is on the brink of being re-instated as the Prime Minister of the UK, and this awkward picture is going viral.

Cameron, in what looks like a possible attempt to recreate a version of the iconic Obama picture, proceeded to mash his face into that of his wife Samantha’s and poked his nose right into her eye.
