Have You Ever Seen Someone Blow Out Their Birthday Candles Like This?

Share this article


Well this is the first time we've ever seen someone blow out their birthday candles like this!

US Senator Mitt Romney celebrated his 72nd birthday yesterday and received a cake made of Twinkies from his staff.

The usual tradition of taking a big deep breath, closing your eyes and making a wish and then blowing out all the candles to a rapturous round of applause is obviously not the done thing in Romney's world.

The video has gone viral with over 5 million views as Twitter users are gobsmacked by his unusual candle technique!

Take a look at the video and watch how he blows them out...

Well, whatever floats your boat! Happy Birthday Mitt!
