Justin Trudeau gave a unicorn a 'Prime Minister's hug' and we don't know how to feel about it

The PM has joined Gary’s Hug Club.

Every now and again, powerful people will have to appear on children’s television. Remember Michelle Obama on Sesame Street?

Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau has got in on the action, joining CBC Kids’ Gary The Unicorn.

Blue unicorn Gary is known for his Hug Club and in a video shared by the show on YouTube, he wants Trudeau to join it.

“I would love to be in your Hug Club, Gary,” the PM says – but it turns out there is one condition.

“You have to give me a hug that I’ve never had before,” instructs Gary in the cute, but slightly odd, video. That’s a tall order from a little unicorn whose existence is purely based on hugging and friendship.

Not to worry though, the cool leader has an extra special hug up his sharply-tailored sleeve.

All’s well that ends well and Trudeau ends up a full member of the Hug Club – that’s way better than the G20.
