The lad responsible for mowing the gigantic penis beneath Donald Trump’s flight path has said he missed A-level revision to create the piece of art.
Ollie Nancarrow spent the weekend carving out his special message to the US president on his family’s land which is close to Stansted Airport in Essex.
The 18-year-old used a drone to take a picture of his creation and of course, it wasn’t long until it was being shared all over the world ahead of Trump’s visit to the UK.
It takes serious patience and determination to carve something of that size, but at least Ollie didn’t have anything better to be doing, like, you know, revising for his A-level exams.
While the whole world was looking at his masterpiece, Ollie was forced to block all the attention out to sit his A-level business exam, which he says ‘went fine under the circumstances.’
And unsurprisingly, Ollie has been quite the hit at school, too.
He told Metro:
All my teachers have been shaking my hand and congratulating me.
My phone’s been off as I’ve had this exam but all my friends have been showing me the news articles.
When asked whether he thought the online attention would get in the way of his remaining exams, he said:
No, and if it does, I’m not too bothered. This was more important.
The sixth form student revealed it took him between three and four hours to carve the message to Trump, adding:
It didn’t take as long you’d think. It was all done free hand with no planning. I just went for it.
Along with the tongue-in-cheek message for Trump, Ollie also mowed a polar bear and a message saying ‘climate change is real,’ which is a nod to the president recently saying climate change experts have a ‘political agenda’ while pulling the US out of the Paris climate accord in 2017.
I’ve been interested in climate change for quite a while and this was the perfect opportunity. Hopefully he flew over it, but if not, he’s definitely seen it on social media by now.
This is not anti-Trump, this is saying, look you need to start realising that climate change is a real thing and if we don’t do anything about it then we’re all a bit screwed.
Never mind an A-level in business, can someone get his fella a Nobel peace prize?
