Students all over New Zealand are finding unique ways to fill their time as the nationwide lockdown continues. Shitposting page ‘Could be keen’ has decided to take an active role in engaging youth in politics, starting a campaign to direct fans to participate in the livestreams of ACT Party leader David Seymour.
Initially, the page directed users to question Seymour regarding the toilet paper shortage, however in subsequent livestreams discussion turned to nangs and diggers.
In one livestream, the ACT Party Leader instructed viewers on how nitrous oxide is used to cream a cake in response to a flood of comments asking Seymour if nangs can still be purchased during the lockdown.
“I think you could probably go to a dairy or a supermarket and buy some nitrous oxide to make your cream cakes, if you’ve been creaming it then that’s your opportunity,” said Seymour. “If anyone doesn’t know what nangs are it is a reference to people taking nitrous oxide, which you are supposed to use to make cream cakes, and inhaling it, and I certainly never did anything like that when I was at university”.
This comes after the ACT Party’s youth wing made headlines earlier this year after trying to sell cream chargers to promote their newly announced drug policy.
The two latest livestreams hosted by Seymour were hijacked with questions over whether you can drive your digger while we sit at Level Four of the COVID-19 Alert System.
Seymour has welcomed the new viewers, most recently quoted saying “come for the diggers, stay for the intelligent political conversation”.
Josh Umbers, admin of ‘Could be keen’, confirmed that “Could be keen have been directing their followers to partake in informative livestreams by a member of parliament and have also been directed to ask questions relating to the shutdown”.
