Working class Guy Matthews contacted after Facebook post spotted
A groundbreaking – and outstandingly sweary – new pro-Labour video with a message to working-class people has gone viral, with over a million views in its first three days just on Twitter.
The video was made after Guy Matthews’ Facebook post was spotted by Simon Baker, a film-maker who has made some of Labour’s game-changing party political broadcasts (PPBs), with just a tiny bit of help from the SKWAWKBOX, which put the two in touch.
The brilliant result – intended to be the first of a series featuring genuine working-class voices talking to working-class people – is completely authentic and superbly constructed:
Film-maker Baker is looking for more working-class people with something they want to say.
