American actor Samuel L. Jackson praised a parody video made by Dutch TV show Zondag met Lubach about the United States' national rifle association NRA. The video, made in October 2017, rebrands the NRA as nonsensical rifle addiction, and describes the large number of gun deaths in the U.S. as a humanitarian disaster caused by this disease.

A day after the "Kamergotchi" app was launched on television program Zondag met Lubach, over 150 thousand people have downloaded it and are now taking care of their own parliamentarians, AD reports.

The app was launched by Arjen Lubach himself. Its name is a mixture of Kamer - as in lower house of Dutch parliament Tweede Kamer - and the toy Tamagotchi, which was very popular in the 90's. Players start with an egg, which they have to shake open. Then they get a politician - one of 17 party leaders - to care for. The politicians must be fed and give attention.
