Man Accidentally Gets Elected To City Council And It’s All His Cat’s FaultFamilyPet
Norwegian black metal rocker Gylve “Fenriz” Nagell was recently elected to his city council. However, he isn’t happy about it. In fact, it was all a big accident and you won’t believe who he is blaming it on.
It all started when Nagell received a call asking if he would be willing to put his name on the list of “backup” representatives. The Dodo reports Nagell agreed because he figured there were plenty of other names on the list and it would never come down to him.
“I said yeah, thinking I would be like 18th on the list and I wouldn’t really have to do anything,” Fenriz said in an interview with CLRVYNT. “They just need a list to be able to … well, it’s hard to talk local politics in another language.”
To make sure he wouldn’t win a bid in the election, he decided to post a picture telling people not to vote for him.
“My campaign was a picture of me holding my cat saying, ‘Please don’t vote for me.'”
So, he posted the photo of him with his cat, Peanut Butter to Instagram. However, Fenriz says the photo backfired. People wanted to vote for the guy posing with the cat.
