Everyone couldn't help but take the piss out of the BBC's election graphics last night

“like that weird videogame that you downloaded for free and tried to play once”

AT EXACTLY 10PM last night, Theresa May knew she had f**ked it all up, and there was no coming back from it.

While everyone was reeling from the exit poll, the BBC coverage introduced us to Jeremy Vine – who was standing in a “virtual Parliament” counting out the projections.

And the background graphics left a little to be desired

People at home had so many thoughts

“This man is in PS2 Parliament”

“BBC are going all out with their graphics, but it looks like they’re playing Harry Potter on PS1″ said another

There was a bit of a Tomb Raider vibe off the whole set up

Later he was trapped inside a virtual Big Ben

And a virtual Downing Street

Please, just release this as a game for retro consoles.

All the serious election stuff was going on, yes, but the election graphics were the only comic relief we had


And they were perfectly summed up by this tweet:

Until the next UK General Election, then


And we’ll be looking forward to the BBC’s graphics once more.

Get out the controllers.
