The breakout star of the Vice Presidential debate was the fly that landed on Mike Pence’s head for over 2 minutes

Though the VP debate did not come up short on noteworthy moments between Senator Kamala Harris and Mike Pence, the MVP award undoubtedly must go to the fly that landed on Mike Pence’s head for two minutes and thirteen seconds. That fly was committed. It did not waver. It convinced millions of Americans watching that we all maybe had flies that landed on our screens? Oh wait, nope, that’s just an actual fly that landed in the Brylcreem of Mike Pence’s corn husk hair.

The fly stood prominently and proud amid the snowy hue of Pence’s coif, unwavering in its dedication to distracting an entire country of viewers from listening to anything that was actually being said and instead, create endless Twitter content and hilarious memes. Naturally, the internet exploded over the fly. As you do.

Biden’s campaign wasted no time capitalizing on the event, which, honestly — well done, sir. Someone’s social media team showed up to work last night.

Honestly, someone on Pence’s team should give that fly some credit. It got everyone to stop talking about his weird, bloody eyeball and astonishing displays of misogyny. Though, to be fair, the content that came out of the bleeding petechial membrane should not go unacknowledged.

It took almost no time before the fly in question suddenly had several of its own Twitter accounts.

It’s hard to look self-righteous when you have a very noticeable insect building a home on top of your head.
