Even if you live outside the U.S. and can't vote in today's election, there are still plenty of ways to showcase your dislike of Donald Trump -- and now you can even do it with a skateboard.

A pair of London-based creatives -- Dal Almeida at AMV BBDO and Ben Buswell at Grey -- has created "Hateboards," which have the faces of celebrities you love to hate printed on the underside (in other words, the side that gets destroyed by all that bashing and flipping).

As well as Trump, there are versions that feature the likes of Kanye West and Nigel Farage -- and Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber are promised for the future. If you want a Trump Hateboard for yourself, they're on sale for 50 pounds ($62) online and in various skate shops.

For Election Day, the pair teamed up with B-Reel Films to release a short film (seen here) featuring some of the U.K.'s fiercest young female skaters bashing their Trump boards all over the streets in a protest against his comments about women. The video is directed by The Rig Out and edited by Charlie Reddie at Stitch.
