The viral VP debate 2020 fly is now a cute hair pin

New York-based designer Melitta Baumeister created the accessory in support of League of Women Voters of the United States

Two nights ago, Kamala Harris and Mike Pence went head-to-head at the VP debate 2020. 

The next day, all that everyone could talk about – no, not the startingly lack of talk around LGBTQ+ issues – was the fly that seemed to take permanent residence on Pence’s head. Next, of course, came the memes, but now, the fly (that’s Lord of the Flies to you peasant) has been immortalised in the form of a hair accessory

Created by New York-based designer Melitta Baumeister, the cute hair pin urges you to VOTE on the upcoming US election on November 3. At $19 (£15), the proceeds from sales of the pin will go to The League of Women Voters of the United States.

“LWV works year-round to make sure all eligible Americans – especially first-time voters, non-college youth, new citizens, communities of colour, and low-income Americans – have the opportunity to register and vote,” reads a post on the designer’s Instagram account. “It is up to everyone to take part in creating the future we want.”
