The election cycle has only just begun, but the 404-error presidential competition is well under way.
In the lead: Bernie Sanders with this oh-so-lovable, could-be-your-grandpa-like message to the frustrated internet users who have come across a buggy version of his sleek campaign website.
“Hi, this is Senator Sanders,” “The good news is, you’re on the right website, and it’s a really good website. The bad news is, you’re on the wrong page. Just scoot down to the bottom of the page and you’ll find your way back home to where you should be.”
First runner up is Hillary Clinton, whose 404-error/Page Not Found pagefeatures a picture of her, Bill, Chelsea and Donald Duck at Disneyland circa 1980-something.
The caption reads: “Oops, that link wasn’t what it was quacked up to be.”
The loser? Marco Rubio, whose “Fumble! You look a little lost,” video then goes on to bore you with the deep, meaningful lessons he learned from playing football.
With everyone and their mother announcing their presidential intentions, you can be sure there will be more of these to come. Enjoy!
