A clip of former Vice President Joe Biden taking a selfie with an elevator operator on his way to a meeting with The New York Times’s editorial board has garnered more than three times the views of the newspaper’s opinion videos for Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), the recipients of a dual endorsement from the board.

“I love you, you’re like, my favorite,” the operator, who identifies herself as Jacquelyn, says in the clip, before the former vice president thanks her and asks if she wants to take a picture.

“You are awesome, oh my God,” she replies.

“Honored to have won Jacquelyn’s endorsement,” Biden tweeted, accompanied by the clip, the day after the Times announced its endorsement of Klobuchar and Warren.

At press time, the video had received 186,700 views. Warren and Klobuchar’s videos received 26,100 views and 15,000 views, respectively.
