A live broadcast outside Parliament went horribly wrong when determined Remain campaigner Steve Bray joined in, crashing literally every shot.
Wearing a 'Stop Brexit' hat and carrying anti-Brexit banners, the protester decided to play mind games with the camera crew while BBC's Annita McVeigh was interviewing Georgina Wright from the Europe Programme at the NGO Chatham House.
A lesson in dogged persistence from this anti-Brexit protestor on BBC News. pic.twitter.com/IYF12bMuiu— Thomas Colson (@tpgcolson) 14 ноября 2018 г.
This cat-and-mouse game lasts for about a minute; the protester has apparently learned a thing or two about camera angles, as he managed to move effortlessly between two shots while cameramen ineffectively attempted to cut him out.
The clip went viral and has triggered a plethora of reactions as well as plenty of parodies. One user, for instance, gave a classic touch to the video by doubling the speed and adding the Benny Hill chase music.
A lot of netizens were delighted with the "chase."
Best laugh of the day….all it needed was a bus passing by in the background with "Bollocks to Brexit" on it to complete the farce.— Judith Williamson (@Judeet88) 14 ноября 2018 г.

It seems that this was not the first live broadcast Steve Bray has crashed.
