Deputy Liberal Leader Josh Frydenberg Is Being Savagely Roasted For This Cringeworthy Video
Does... does Josh Frydenberg not know how to walk?
Move over Scott Morrison. The Coalition has a new big screen charisma machine, and its Deputy Liberal Leader and boy who might one day grow up to be Prime Minister Josh Frydenberg.
For weeks, we’ve been laughing at Morrison’s cringe-worthy social media videos, which have combined the production values of a community centre orientation film with the easy-going charm of Scott Morrison. And yet somehow, on Tuesday, Frydenberg managed to limbo under that bar.
Behold, the worst 57 seconds of video ever produced.
If you own your own property – under Labor’s plan, it will be worth less.
If you rent your own home – under Labor’s policy, you will pay more.
Only the Coalition can be trusted to keep your taxes low & keep the economy strong. pic.twitter.com/hxw93M5tqu

I mean, where to even start with this thing? Is it the stilted delivery? The way the light shines off his forehead? The way he lurches towards the camera at the end there like he’s going to try and murder the viewer?

Either way, the reviews have not been kind.
this has the very distinct flavour of when a video game takes over control of the camera for NPC interaction, with the characteristic stilted delivery caused by waiting to hit certain markers for the next line of dialogue to be triggered https://t.co/pZrAhzB3cc

This is like when the owner of a carpet store insists, against all advice, on doing the ads himself https://t.co/A9uMFKTHJO

Look, the natural delivery of a set piece-to-camera while walking between two defined marks is not as easy as most TV presenters make it seem, but even grading on a curve this is not ideal. https://t.co/NedTtH4OCj

Really make me feel like I’m casually moving backwards for some reason while having a very natural conversation with a normal man who has totally walked before. 10/10 https://t.co/cWssbB7Mpu

Josh Frydenberg discusses housing, then stops short of the moat because someone forgot to lower the drawbridge in front of him. https://t.co/bYjHVi7fnt

Is this real? Did they release one of the outtakes by mistake? https://t.co/cVwl3Ualjk
