David Cameron called Obama, and the whole Internet joined in
Oh, hello, Patrick Stewart. Didn’t see you there.
The Internet became part of a very important phone call.
To keep his followers and constituents up to date, Prime Minister David Cameron reaffirmed to his Twitter followers that he and President Barack Obama were united in condemning Russia for its actions. To prove it, he posted a photo of himself talking on the phone. The stern expression. The pose. It’s perfect.

What Cameron probably didn’t plan was for the Internet to enter the call as well. It started with comedian Rob Delaney, and other celebrities soon joined in.

Who needs a super selfie when you’ve got these guys all on the line?

Soon enough, anyone who had a phone started tuning in.

Cameron might’ve dialed the wrong number at first.

At a certain point, it didn’t matter if you had a phone at your side or not. If you could hold it up like a phone, it was a phone.
