The prime minister has been mocked after releasing a Vogue-style question and answer video as part of his election campaign.
Walking though his campaign offices in one take, Boris Johnson answers a number of questions related to how he starts his day, his role as prime minister, and his views on marmite.
One of the most bizarre moments of the Conservative’s first election broadcast is where the prime minister says one of his greatest struggles leading the country is not being able to get Thai curry ordered to Downing Street due to security protocol.

Many were shocked to hear the prime minister’s favourite bands are the notoriously leftist, progressive punk band The Clash as well as the Rolling Stones.
Responses online to the video were mixed with some saying it was “the most David Brent thing ever”, and others saying it “looked like a shit reboot of The Office”.
Author, broadcaster and human rights campaigner Yasmin Khan added: “lol to the random brown person they asked to walk past” in an allegation of tokenism.
