Andrew Yang is not your conventional presidential candidate, which is a large part of why the former tech executive who built his campaign around a promise to give every American $1,000 a month has been able to maintain momentum, keep raising money, and find himself polling better than all but a handful of Democratic 2020 contenders.

So while lower-polling candidates are dropping out of the race, Yang is gearing up for primary season. On Tuesday, he opened a new office in Manchester, New Hampshire, which will hold its primary on February 11th. “We’re growing and growing. We’re in a peak at the right time,” Yang said. “When other campaigns are scaling back and shrinking, we are hiring and expanding.”

Yang proceeded to celebrate by shaking up a can of whipped cream and spraying it into the mouth of a kneeling supporter wearing a MATH (“Make America Think Harder”) hat. “The office opening is complete!” he said.

Another supporter (also wearing a MATH hat) then took a knee. “Yeaaaaaaah!” Yang said as he sprayed more whipped cream. Unfortunately, his campaign manager quickly stepped in and pulled the candidate away from the situation.

“Yeaaaaaaah!” Yang added.

Yang’s campaign did not immediately respond to a request for clarity about where the whipped cream came from and/or if pie was involved.
