Jeremy Corbyn Rickrolls everyone ahead of British election

Great Britain heads to the polls for a hotly contested election on Thursday, which will shape the future of both Great Britain and the rest of the European Union.

The margins between Labour and the Tories are expected to be razor-thin, and any little bit of last-minute news, scandal, or shocking development could swing the vote.

Which is why this tweet this morning from Labour head Jeremy Corbyn stopped everyone in its tracks.

Shocking, scandalous images, on the day of an election? What could be worse for the party?

Luckily for Labour, it was just a well-done Rickroll. The link leads to a site with polling information and locations.

And it worked. Just about everyone said they clicked. Or offered their own spin on the images.

Will it be enough to swing things in Labour’s favor? We’ll find out tonight.
