This promo video for Trump's state visit is the best thing you'll see today

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Or is it... a large, rotund, orange, nappy-wearing blimp that looks like Donald Trump? Yes, it's definitely the latter.

Donald Trump, the president of the United States (yes, it's still as crazy as it was in 2016 when he got elected), will be arriving in the United Kingdom tomorrow for a three-day State Visit, which will consist of a banquet at Buckingham Palace with the Queen, an audience with the outgoing prime minister Theresa May, and lots and lots of protestors.

Ahead of his arrival, Sky News has released a promo video for their coverage of the forthcoming visit, and it's fair to say that it's very, very good.

Guardian journalist Hannah Jane Parkinson shared the video to her Twitter account, alongside the caption:

Sky’s promo for its Trump visit coverage is very good indeed

We can't help but agree.

In the video, a large shadow can be seen enveloping streets Independence Day style, dogs, houses, and even Buckingham Palace and the royals are obscured by a doomladen shadow, as people look up at the menacing presence in the sky above them.

Yes, it's the blimp.

Other social media users were equally as impressed by the video.

The big orange baby blimp will be making a reappearance at this year's Trump visit. Anna Vickerstaff, a Trump blimp “Babysitter”, said:

Now that the GLA has given us permission, we’re almost ready to fly the baby.

All we need now is for the public to help us to hit our fundraiser target in support of the groups who are fighting the impacts of Trump’s disastrous policies.

We’ve promised to get the baby in the air again – but only if and when we raise money for these groups.

We’re all for making a joke out of Trump, but we won’t let the opportunity pass to support those fighting the very serious impacts of what he’s doing.
