NASCAR had its own “bug moment” go viral after a stink bug landed on a camera at Charlotte Motor Speedway during the Roval 400 Race.
NASCAR on NBC quickly made light of the situation with a tweet.
“There’s no debate, the @CLTMotorSpdwy ROVAL is a lot of fun. #NASCARPlayoffs.”
NASCAR on NBC was of course referencing the 2020 vice presidential debate when a fly landed on Vice President Mike Pence’s head.
NASCAR viral bug moment draws funny responses
Several followers took a moment to chime in following yet another viral bug moment.
One user wrote, “Hey, he wants to watch also!” While another wrote, “Even insects are NASCAR fans! LOL.”
Hilariously, NASCAR on NBC took the time to reply to one follower who asked, “Ewwwww is that a stink bug?” The NASCAR on NBC account simply responded, “Nothing the official sponsors of @NASCAR couldn’t destroy.
One follower retweeted the video and said “POV: Mike Pence watching a nascar race.”
A fly landed on Mike Pence during the vice presidential debate
Social media has been ablaze ever since a fly landed on Pence’s head during the vice presidential debate. The fly lingered for nearly two minutes without Pence noticing.
Within minutes, parody Twitter accounts for made for the fly. Additionally, Snapchat added a new filter to show users with white hair and a fly on their heads.
Shortly after, NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace joined the conversation. Wallace responded to a Twitter poll asking, “Who would you rather see on DBC?” Answers included Donald Trump, Mike Pence, Kamala Harris and Joe Biden. The candidate Wallace had in mind, however, was the “the fly.”
Pence isn’t the only politician to have a “fly moment.” Both Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump had moments when a fly landed on their head. Further, Barrack Obama was criticized by PETA when he killed a fly during an interview with CNBC.
