The student who mowed a giant penis under Donald Trump’s flightpath says he had to take time out of his A-Level revision to create the masterpiece.
Ollie Nancarrow, 18, spent the weekend carving out his message for the President in his family’s land close to Stansted Airport, Essex.
He took a picture of the creation with a drone and it was predictably beamed around the world as Trump landed for the first day of his state visit to the UK.
Going viral would make any person’s day hectic, but Ollie has had to block it all out to get through his A-Level business exam.
He told Metro.co.uk that despite all the attention he’s been getting, the exam ‘went fine under the circumstances’.
As you might have guessed, Ollie was the main topic of conversation at his school today.
He said: ‘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 if he thinks it will get in the way of his remaining A-Levels, Ollie said: ‘No, and if it does, I’m not too bothered. This was more important.’
He said it took him three to four hours to complete the protest, 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 giant penis, Ollie mowed a polar bear and a ‘climate change is real’ message for the president, who recently accused climate change experts of having a ‘political agenda’ and pulled the US out of the Paris climate accord in 2017.
Ollie said: ‘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.’
He added: ‘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.’
