John Key's nail fail goes viral

  • 10/03/2015

Prime Minister John Key admits he's no handyman after a video of him trying to hammer a nail - and repeatedly missing - went viral.

The video, which has been doing the rounds on social media, shows Mr Key trying to help put up a hoarding for National's Northland candidate Mark Osborne over the weekend.

With a hammer in hand, Mr Key manages to miss the nail countless times.

"It was a shocker, eh?" he told reporters today.

"All that proves is I'm never any good at woodwork. I did tell them I can't do this very well."

Asked if he's a handyman around the house, Mr Key said: "No, Bronagh [Mr Key's wife] gets a man in, don't worry about that."
