Joe Biden’s presidential campaign took advantage of the memes featuring Mike Pence with a fly on his head by launching a new site called Fly Will Vote.
If you’ve been on Twitter in the last day then you’ll probably already be aware of the fly that sat on Mike Pence’s head during yesterday’s Vice Presidential debate. Pence debated candidate Kamala Harris ahead of the November 3rd election, but the fly chilling on his head for a good few minutes became the talk of social media—and Joe Biden’s campaign loved it.
The democrat’s campaign set up a new site mocking the whole thing, titled Fly Will Vote. Biden’s official twitter account simply tweeted the link to flywillvote.com alone, which gained over 347k likes.
What is Fly Will Vote dot com?
At the moment, it leads nowhere new. Biden’s campaign team purchased the domain swiftly after the debate and used it as a redirecting tool to iwillvote.com.
I Will Vote is the Democratic National Committee’s voter participation website in which voters can check their registration, find locations to vote, and find the best method to vote by mail depending on their location.
Who can use flywillvote.com?
Although the site is owned by Democrats, the information it gives is impartial and so anyone can use it.
“However a voter chooses to cast their ballot, the updated IWillVote.com site makes it easy for Americans to exercise their right to participate in our democracy and ensure their voice is heard in this critical election,” said Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez.
Twitter’s reaction to Fly Will Vote
As the fly on Mike Pence’s head became the real star of the debate, memes flooded twitter and Fly Will Vote only increased the virality of it all.
Users replied with memes of the fly answering press questions and holding election banners.
Fly Will Vote however wasn’t the only digital dupe of the fly. A Twitter account with the handle @mikepencefly__ appeared during last night’s debate and gained over 91k followers in just a few hours.
