The mayor of New York City has turned himself into a complete and utter meme.
Bill de Blasio appeared at City Hall dressed in basketball team Brooklyn Nets uniform to thank them for letting their base be used as a vaccination centre. But he may not have realised just how silly he looked:
For the uninitiated, the ‘how do you do fellow kids’ meme is taken from a 30 Rock scene in which Steve Buscemi wears a T-shirt reading “Music Band” and a backwards baseball cap, imagining that he is passing as a teenager:
Speaking at a press conference, he said: “The biggest victory for the Nets is yet to come. The Nets are stepping up for Brooklyn, for the whole city of New York. The Nets are now going to be joining the battle against Covid with a mobile vaccination site right outside Barclays Centre”.
Bill de Blasio is a Nets fan for the day.
