The Guy Who Made A Rude Gesture At Nigel Farage Has Received Nearly £800 In Drink Fund Donations

It pretty much looks like “Gary” won’t need to buy another pint all year.

1. In case you somehow missed it, the “Farage Wave” was born outside The Bell Inn in Bath on Tuesday.

Nigel Farage entered the pub with a BBC TV crew. The senior manager of the pub has issued a statement in which he explains that he told Farage he was welcome to stay and have a pint, but that he felt it was inappropriate for him to use the premises for his hustings.

While he was outside being interviewed, this happened. The protagonist is a man who has thus far only been identifed as “Gary”.

2. Here it is in slo-mo.

3. The pub was inundated with requests to buy “Gary” from the video a pint.

An online fund was set up. It can be found here.

So far, £771.74 has been raised.

And the fund’s organisers tell BuzzFeed that people are apparently visiting the pub from outside Bath to buy Gary a drink.

4. They also say there are requests for T-shirts like this one.

And that they’re going to need to start rationing Gary’s drinks.
