David Cameron Posted A Picture Of Himself On The Phone And Spawned A Meme

The Prime Minister was trying to project a statesman's image as he called Barack Obama to talk about Ukraine. The internet had better ideas.

David Cameron gave Barack Obama a call to chat about the Ukraine crisis.

I've been speaking to @BarackObama about the situation in Ukraine. We are united in condemnation of Russia's actions.

So far, so serious. Then other people soon started dialling in.

Graham Linehan decided to join the call.

At which point others barged in.

@Glinner Just arranged for the council to remove a mattress.

Some struggled to get the hang of it but still did their best.

@Glinner Just trying to complain about the funny smell emanating from my phone... #davecalls

Well, at least pretended to try.

You won't believe the filth Mr. Cameron is spouting on this phone call...

Then it started to go very wrong.

"Hi David where are you calling from?"

Very wrong.

REALLY wrong.

By this point Obama wasn't very impressed.

But they just kept coming.

And coming.

Yeah, big deal. The UK Prime Minister can use a phone. Anyone can do that.

Admittedly it sometimes got a bit surreal.

Or just downright disturbing.

@glinner "Get me Osbourne, immediately!" #tweetlikecameron

Some people really went for it.

@SirPatStew @seyitaylor @robdelaney @David_Cameron @BarackObama copy.

The internet's Rob Delaney belatedly arrived.

.@David_Cameron @BarackObama Hi guys, I'm on the line now too. Get me up to speed.

By now it was going global.

@David_Cameron @BarackObama @robdelaney yeah we need to figure this out asap guys

And then, as with all of the best things in this world, Patrick Stewart turned up and held a packet of Wet Ones to his face.

.@robdelaney @David_Cameron @BarackObama I'm now patched in as well. Sorry for the delay.
