A Labour supporter tricked the New Zealand National’s deputy leader into posing for a selfie on September 8 before telling her she was going to lose the election and dancing to Darude’s Sandstorm. Josh Owens, a Kaitangata man from south Otago, intercepted Paula Bennett while she was campaigning in Bayview, north of Auckland. He approached her with his phone and the two posed for a photo. “Hey Paula, you know you and your boy [Bill English] are going down, eh?” he said. “No way! No way, sunshine!” the deputy leader responded. Owens continued taunting her before declaring “Vote Labour!” and humming the iconic dance song. The video has since racked up close to 150,000 views and 2,500 shares on Facebook. Owens played a similar trick on National politician Jonathan Coleman in August.
