New Zealand Covid-19 Response Minister Chris Hipkins went viral when his tongue slipped ridiculously while updating the nation’s positive opportunities today.
At a press conference yesterday, New Zealand Covid-19 Response Minister Chris Hipkins told the Kiwis, “Stretch your legs,” jokingly slipping his tongue. Hipkins was updating the nation on the number of positive coronavirus cases today, reminding everyone of the social distance he unknowingly made an X-rated mistake. “It’s a challenge to go out. And spread your legs when other people in densely populated areas surround people,” he said. He accidentally instructed the Kiwis to “stretch their legs” instead of “extend their legs” and, after realizing his mistake, slipped through the rest of his sentence.
Seconds later, Director-General of Health Leysley Bloomfield was spotting smiling and raising his eyebrows at Hipkins following a series of hilarious phrases. That moment went viral instantly as many Kiwis took to Twitter. To have fun about the unfortunate slip. “Stay out of the club when your legs are outstretched,” one wrote. Another added a photographed Covid-19 ad and told people to “widen your legs”: “Latest official government advice, please retweet to get the message.” The third said, “Today, we need to tell Chris Hipkins to widen his legs instead of randomly lengthening.” The fourth one was simply a joke: “Chris Hipkins, Sosi flirting.” In the afternoon, Hipkins went on social media, posting a photo with the caption, “The moment you realize that what you mean and what you say is not the same.”
