In a series of unfortunate events, Corbyn and Thornberry began by posing for a photo-op as several supporters were cheering them on from the sidelines. First, they embraced each other in a bear hug, then Corbyn went in for what looks like a failed fist bump that turned into a finger pointing contest, later wrapped up by a cringe-worthy slap on the chest.
While the two quickly laughed off the ill-timed high-five, the internet wasn’t quite done with the fiasco and some were left channeling their inner detective to figure out who was at fault.

Others even recognized their own mishaps in Corbyn’s failure.

Though, for the most part, many just saw the incident for what it was— an accident.

Let’s hope this demonstration on how to properly high-five a person helps out good ‘ol Jeremy on his next attempt.
