The Little Britain creator took to social media to share a video where he sent up the complex US voting system amid the results of their 2020 Election.

Matt Lucas has shared a humorous video, which pokes fun at the complicated US Election results.

Like many of us, the Little Britain is no doubt waiting to find out if Donald Trump or Joe Biden will win the 2020 Presidential election, but he couldn't help but send up the complex US voting system with another of his small skits.

Looking to camera and speaking in an American accent, Lucas says: "So the President needs to take Arkansas. If he takes Arkansas, he also needs to take Pennsylvania. If he doesn't have the popular vote in Maine, he can still win Maine, but he needs to take Nebraska.

"Nebraska only makes sense if he takes New Jersey. New Jersey won't matter to him if he takes West Virginia, but he needs to take West Virginia and also take Florida. If he does take Florida, he won't need to take Mississippi."

Sounds pretty simple right? Watch his clip above.

Many of his followers got the joke, with one writing: "Brilliant I’ve been trying to explain to my kids how it works but had to give up as confusing myself lol".
