So on the 13th of July 2020, the Nigerian Police posted an instructional video on Twitter on how to navigate its online portal for those looking to join the force. Nigerian Twitter saw the video and lost its collective mind because…see ehn…the video…wasn’t…
After the hailstorm of criticism, they deleted the video. But because I’m a messy bitch who lives for drama, I’m about to list out all the things that were wrong with it. Watch it below:
1) The Voiceover: I damn near died laughing the moment the voiceover began because it sounded like it was done by Dracula on a day he was battling a pretty nasty head cold. Wtf was that accent? Transylvanian??
2) The Soundtrack: Not to expose the shenanigans I used to get up to as a child, but if you’re familiar with the mild, almost retro video game-like background music from 90s softcore pornography, you’ll understand what’s funny about this video’s soundtrack. Here’s a meme that perfectly represents all I could imagine while watching the video:
3) The Spelling: They forgot the “t” in “recruitment”, misspelled “fourth” as “forth”, and “complaint” as “compliant”. I’m not saying that whoever made this can’t spell. (Those mistakes are obviously typos.). But that proves this was made in a hurry, and the fact that no one at the Nigerian police force noticed the mistakes is troubling.
4) The Design: Given the way things like this in Nigeria, you just know an insane amount of money was allocated to this project but we somehow got THIS as the end result.
They could’ve at least used a black avatar. Who the hell is that white nigga?
