VIEWERS were left in stitches when a politician ‘turned into a horseracing commentator’ mid-way through an incredible interview.
Welsh Conservative Group leader Andrew RT Davies has gone viral for his rapid-fire, motormouth performance on BBC Breakfast.
The 53-year-old Welshman barely paused for breath as he rattled out a monster answer to a question from host Dan Walker.
After starting out a canter, Davies burst into life at around the 35-second mark of the clip.
Like a flustered commentator trying to call the end of a race, Davies tried his best to blurt out all his pledges for the upcoming Senedd election on May 6.
But instead of listening to the words, it seems overwhelmed viewers were floored by how quickly he rattled out his speech, with all the words rolling into one.
In response to some parts of Davies’ answer, one witty Twitter user wrote: “Betting all my money on Holyhead Freeport, that horse has been in great form.”
Another said: “The bookies have Union Highways at 2-1.”
While a fellow Twitter user quipped: “Did the A40 have it by a nose or was it a photo-finish?”
One person even drew up a fake racecard, with odds for each of his key messages.
And in response to the clip, they joked: “All I can think of is that he must’ve been working at Chepstow racecourse at some point in a past life.”
Another said: “F**k me it’s John McCririck.”
While one wrote simply: “Can’t stop laughing.”
Davies’s tongue-twisting performance is reminiscent of one commentator who recently had the difficult task of pronouncing one horse’s name.
Japanese horse Sumomomomomomomomo already has cult icon status to her ridiculous title.
Every commentator dreads seeing her name on the racecard, but at least these two coped as best they could.
