John Key ponytail saga explained in an awesome animated video

Haven’t been following #ponytailgate? Well this video is for you.


In this clip posted by TomoNews, we experience a cartoon version of New Zealand Prime Minister John Key repeatedly tugging on a waitress’ hair.

The Auckland waitress said that Key had been pulling her hair over several months, even after she asked him to stop.

“He was like the school yard bully tugging on the little girl’s hair trying to get a reaction, experiencing that feeling of power over her,” she said.

Key eventually apologised and gave her two bottles of red wine after she confronted him. He said that his actions were meant to be “light-hearted”.

“It was never his intention to make her feel uncomfortable and he has apologised to her,” his office said in a statement.
