The president of a country gives a speech, a child circles around him


The boy dressed in a Superman onsie circles around the President of Chile.

“Superman” surprisingly appeared during a speech by Chilean President Gabriel Boric. No, it wasn’t the actual Man of Steel, but a child dressed in a superman costume who was filmed riding a bike around Mr. Boric. The president was speaking after casting his vote for the constitutional plebiscite, according to local outlet 24 Horas, but it was the boy who caught the attention of those in attendance. The video of the child’s antics is going viral on social media.

The clip was recorded last week as Mr Boric called on Chileans to vote for a new constitution, which was ultimately rejected by an overwhelming majority, Reuters news agency reported.

The president was talking passionately but the young child, dressed in a red cap and blue superhero jumpsuit, cycled around him on a blue-colored balance bike, as seen in the video.

After a few laps, he stops to listen to the President but then continues his bike ride, seemingly unaware of what is going on. His blue colored helmet was hanging from the handlebars of the bike.

The video received over 1.33 lakh views on Twitter and left many users angry.

“At least something good happened today,” said one user. “Why don’t we talk about it more? commented another.

Some 7.9 million Chileans voted against the draft constitution on Sunday compared to 4.9 million who voted in favour, a blow to the country’s 36-year-old president who backed its passage, according to Reuters.

The vote was seen as a political thermometer for Mr Boric, who entered office in March promising economic and social reforms, although he has been criticized for high levels of inflation and economic uncertainty.
