The fly that took up temporary residence on Vice President Mike Pence’s head can add Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden to its growing fan base.

During Wednesday’s vice presidential debate between Pence and his Democratic opponent, Sen. Kamala Harris of California, an insect landed on Pence’s head and hung out there for more than two minutes as millions of viewers watched on. It blew up on Twitter, where many said the winged intruder stole the show.

Biden swiftly tweeted an image of himself equipped with a fly swatter, asking voters to donate to “help this campaign fly.”
