Recently, politicians have gotten very creative with that little “404” page that helpfully lets users know that they have navigated to an address that doesn’t exist.
Hillary Clinton’s, for instance, includes a very Disney family photo featuring Donald Duck with the text, “Oops, that link wasn’t what it was quacked up to be.”
Marco Rubio’s error page mimics his water-chugging response to the State of the Union Address in 2013 — with a complete fumble. A video shows Rubio coaching youth football with a voiceover discussion of lessons the game has taught him.
But if the 2016 election were to be judged by campaign website error pages, Bernie Sanders has emerged as an early winner.
The self-proclaimed Democratic Socialist has officially announced his run for President but, before that, he was prepared with what is probably the best 404 page of the campaign yet. The page even has the extension /WTF.
“The good news is you’re on the right website, and it’s a really good website,” Sanders says in the video posted on his error page. “The bad news is, you’re on the wrong page.”
“Just scoot down to the bottom of the page and you’ll find your way back home to where you should be,” Sanders continues. “Thanks very much for being part of our campaign.”
A note at the bottom of the page indicates that the web site is “paid for by Bernie 2016 (not the billionaires).”
It might be the wrong page, but it feels oh-so-right.
