    While Theresa May was convincing her government to agree to a draft divorce deal with the European Union, protests broke out in London against Britain's looming departure from the bloc - and it seems that some people went to great lengths to make their point to a mass audience...

    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.

    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."

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