David Shearer’s secret electoral weapon…grrrrr

Filmed at Waitangi by TV3, they have captured David Shearer’s secret weapon…weird young people and David Shearer making scratching hand signals.

Weird I know, but it must have some meaning…you know like the hand signals that crips and bloods make in the gang land of LA:

The attached summary on theYoutube clip explains…well sort of:

David Shearer and his eager Young Labour supporters gathered for a bizarre photo op at Waitangi.
In unison, the group growled and hissed at the camera, performing what one of them called the “Shearer lion hands”.
More laughter followed a (serious?) joke from Shearer: ‘make sure everyone knows it’s not a pussycat, alright’.
Where are these mysterious Shearer claws? When will he get them out and use them to scratch ‘Teflon John’?
Filmed by Simon Morrow and edited by Kellee Laufiso-Finau.

Weird people do weird things. It all just reminds me of a Monty Python sketch:

  • Rod Emmerson sums things up nicely; when someone says to David Shearer that he is “da bomb”, I don’t think this is what he has in mind…

    If you go down in the woods today you’re sure of a big surprise
    If you go down in the woods today you’d better go in disguise
    For every bear that ever there was will gather there for certain
    Because today’s the day the Teddy Bears have their picnic

    Every Teddy Bear who’s been good is sure of a treat today
    There’s lots of marvellous things to eat and wonderful games to play
    Beneath the trees where nobody sees they’ll hide and seek as long as they please
    That’s the way the Teddy Bears have their picnic
    Picnic time for Teddy Bears
    The little Teddy Bears are having a lovely time today
    (From: http://www.elyrics.net)
    Watch them, catch them unawares and see them picnic on their holiday
    See them gaily gad about
    They love to play and shout
    They never have any cares
    At six o’clock their Mummies and Daddies will take them home to bed
    ‘Cause they’re tired little Teddy Bears

    If you go down in the woods today you better not go alone
    It’s lovely down in the woods today but safer to stay at home
    For every bear that ever there was will gather there for certain
    Because today’s the day the Teddy Bears have their picnic

    Is it just me or does the guy next to Shearer look like a young Bishop Brian?

  • Lion_ess

    Anyone else get the impression that David Shearer becomes “whoever you want me to be” with each different scenario he encounters? Perhaps if he got together with John Key more often, he could pretend he’s a leader too.

  • Mark

    Bejaysus the young lefties are bigger fucking douches than the young righties.

  • Patrick

    Just like John Key – Shearer doesn’t mind making a dick of himself in public, but like everything else Shearer does he just looks like a dick.

  • cows4me

    How embarrassing, the man has to be desperate.

  • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

    In this video Sheep appears so down to earth and he will eat Emperor for breakfast in the leaders’ debate come election time….

    • Lion_ess

      Yes, he’s now engaged Craig Busch as his new media trainer. Look out JK, roaaarrr!

  • Hazards001

    He’s a no talent professional bludger is what he is. And his poorly dressed cubs with their appalling ’80’s style manes need to take a long hard look at their futures as well. They look like the hopeful bludgers they clearly want to be already! Bunch of little pussies to be fair….meeeeow
