A UCC student has made a brilliant campaign video using the Love Actually doorstep scene

Say it’s the pizza man.

SU ELECTIONS ARE taking place in UCC today and tomorrow – and Martin Scally is going for the top job of SU President.

Last night, he made a last ditch effort to get out the vote – with an inspired parody of the Love Actually cue card scene:

As SU campaign videos go, this is top drawer.

Spliced in between the actual footage is Martin himself with the cards

He lays out his campaign plan succinctly, with Picture This playing in the background

Campaign manager Eoin Collopy tells that the idea was all Martin’s – and it’s been a few months in the works:

We only finished it yesterday so we launched it last night. We had the idea while watching Love Actually at Christmas time, we thought it would be a funny and relatable way to get Martin’s vision for UCC across.

If Keira Knightley went to UCC, you’d have to think Scally would be getting her No 1 after that display.
