British prime minister’s super serious ‘on-the-phone-to-Obama’ selfie tweet, parodied by celebrities

David Cameron, Rob Delaney and Patrick Stewart on a ‘conference call’ with Barack Obama

You’re the prime minister of the UK and you’ve just got off the phone to the president of the US after a serious discussion about Russia and the Ukraine situation, so what do you do? Why, if you’re David Cameron, post a picture of your phone call on Twitter to keep the public up to date…

What you probably don’t expect though, is a parodying reply from US comic Rob Delaney, swapping the phone for his toothpaste and joining the conversation…

…which was then jumped on by Shakespearean actor and Hollywood star Sir Patrick Stewart, this time swapping the phone for some… er… wipes…

Twitter took over from there and that is how memes are born:
