Scottish Tories faced embarrassment today after a promotional video posted to their Youtube channel appeared to involuntarily show a homeless man searching for food in a Glasgow bin.
In the edited version of the video above, a man can clearly be seen to stand up and look into the bin on Buchanan Street, Glasgow, before sitting back down again.
The video quickly became a hit on social networking and news site Reddit and users were quick to call out the party for their mistake.
One reddit user wrote: “I dunno, I thought it was brave of them to include a homeless guy, begging beside a bin, having a rummage and then sitting down, when their talking head was waffling about Davidson…”
The original version of the video can be viewed here.
