The British prime minister proved that last week in Staffordshire, England, at the unveiling of a memorial to police officers who have died in the line of duty, Reuters reported.
The event—which Prince Charles also attended —was supposed to be somber, but no one told the umbrella. The bumbershoot refused to cooperate when Johnson attempted to open it during the ceremony—turning inside-out.
As the video of the occasion shows, Prince Charles had a problem stifling his delight over Johnson’s inept performance with the brolly. He was quite amused to see the prime minister appear to mimic the inept British comic character Mr. Bean.
Twitter users were also amused … and many took to the social media site to comment on Johnson’s predicament. In addition, one TV host even offered advice to Johnson, should he ever choose to open an umbrella again.
Johnson has struggled with other inanimate objects in the past, say the HuffPost.
