Weird Boris Johnson says he spends his spare time making model buses out of wine boxes.
In a bizarre moment during a radio interview, the Tory PM hopeful went on at length about how he relaxes by crafting large replicas of London buses.
He explained that he takes wine crates, paints them red and adds paintings of people inside the buses, enjoying themselves.
He told TalkRadio's Ross Kempsell: "I like to paint or I make things.
"I make, I have a thing where I make models of… When I was mayor of London… I make, buses. I make models of buses."
Asked if he'd be taking the models into Downing Street if he won the election, he elaborated further: "I get, I get old, um, wooden crates, right? And I paint them and they have to contain two wine bottles.
"And it will have a dividing thing. And I turn it into a bus and I put passengers… you really want to do this?"
Kempsell said: "You're making buses, you're making cardboard buses. Okay. That's what you do to enjoy yourself."
Johnson replied: "No, I paint the passengers enjoying themselves."
Kempsell said: "OK. Great."
Johnson went on: "On a wonderful bus. Low carbon of a kind that we brought to the streets of London that reduces CO2, reduces Nitrous Oxide, reducing pollution…"
He did not say whether he wrote anything on the side of the buses.
Later in the interview he found himself unable to recall what the last sporting event he watched was.
But he said he went to see England play cricket against "someone or other", but fell asleep.
He was referring to England's match against India at the Oval last September, when he did indeed appear to fall asleep.
Boris Johnson has a torrid history with buses.
Aside from his notorious connection with the '£50 million a week' Brexit bus, he was roundly criticised while Mayor of London for his introduction of new 'Routemaster' buses.
When they were originally released, the 'Boris Buses' lacked opening windows.
And the air conditioning system only kicked in when the eco-friendly electric engine gave way to the diesel motor.
Unfortunately the buses never got fast enough in central London for the air conditioning to work, so they got extremely hot and stuffy for commuters.
They were refitted in 2015 to add functioning windows.
