The brief appearance of a fly stole the show from Wednesday night's vice presidential debate between US Vice President Mike Pence and Democratic challenger Senator Kamala Harris.

One of the many key moments from the debate was a fly — not on the wall though! A stray housefly sat for several minutes on Pence's white hair, hanging on as he shook his head and parried with Harris over race and criminal justice — providing comic fodder for late-night hosts and Twitter users alike. Biden's campaign sold flyswatters to capitalize on the buzz.

Over the next couple of hours the buzzing fly became the talking point of the world and so much that it had its own Twitter account named as the "Mike Pence's Fly" with an eclectic(for lack of a better word) mix of tweets.

The silver-coloured wig with a small fly on it has been termed 'Debate Fly Wig' priced at $49.95 (Rs 3652).

Twitter too buzzed with netizens wishing to don themselves in the eccentric look of Mike Pence even before the site put up the Fly Wing.

Some even joked about the need to test the fly for coronavirus, as it had skirted the plexiglass partitions separating the candidates and moderator, reports AP.
