High-Five That Lands on Woman’s Chest Is All Sorts of Awful

This high-five is a low moment in the history of celebrations.
Jeremy Corbyn had a surprisingly good showing in British elections on Thursday, but what many people may remember is how he expressed his pleasure over it.
Look at the painfully terrible high-five he tries to exchange with fellow politician Emily Thornbery that ends when his hand somehow lands on her chest. They playfully point to each other and Corbyn tries to take it to the next level by giving the high-five. Unfortunately, she looks away just when he decides to give her some skin. He probably couldn’t do this again if he tried.
It’s rare that a high-five goes so wrong you could be cited for sexual harassment, but Corbyn manages to pull off the feat. He’s a pioneering politician, for none of the reasons he wants.
Here’s a longer clip of the awkward moment:
