A YouTube comedian managed to convince Tommy Robinson to endorse his made up EDL parody, in a glorious video prank.
Niko Omilana , who we can only assume has nerves of steel, has made a name for himself going “undercover as a racist” in a string of YouTube clips.
He shows up to EDL and pro-Trump rallies in the UK pretending to be a supporter and very subtly pranks the people attending.
But he wasn’t satisfied with just pranking the nationalist movement founded by Robinson – he wanted the man himself.
Somehow he managed to get close enough to Robinson to interview him – and went on to convince him to endorse the NDL – the Niko Defence League.
It’s quite a moment.
“There we go,” Niko says in the video. “To all the EDL members sending me death threats, your creator has approved my movement.
“I basically own you now, OK?”
It’s hard to argue with that logic.
