#BringBackOurGirls still not brought back their girls

A new video showing some of the kidnapped girls from Chibok, Nigeria has brought fresh hope to families, and has led to calls for the world to do more to help.

The #BrignBackOurGirls social media campaign was formed in 2014 and showed celebrities and world leaders holding up signs saying ‘#BringBackOurGirls’ and looking sad.

Prime Minister David Cameron was initially confused.

“’Bring back our girls?’ What’s Whittingdale done now?”

Though he immediately pledged a real practical support from the UK.

“Oh, the thing where I held up that sign and looked all sad. Well, if that’s all still a problem, then I am fully prepared to hold up another sign and look sad again.

“But just not right now, I have a meeting with my accountant to discuss legitimate financial dealings.”

First Lady Michelle Obama was one of the most high profile supporters of the campaign.

“I am distraught that this is still an issue but as wife of the man who has at his fingertips the most powerful military machine that the world has ever seen, holding up a sign and looking sad was definitely the best I could do.”

Model Cara Delevingne defended the campaign.

“Perhaps the problem is that as celebrities and world leaders we haven’t held up enough signs and looked sad enough?

“If we keep trying, it’s bound to bring back the girls from wherever. I mean, look at the Ice-Bucket Challenge, that solved whatever that was about.”

With the two year anniversary of the kidnapping approaching, it is expected a low profile celebrity will try and get a photo of them holding up a #BringBackOurGirls 2yrs’ sign to go viral.

Tulisa Contostavlos, probably.
