Sen. John McCain’s online poker faux pas this week has created a massive boost in sales for the iPhone app of his choice, TMZ first reported.

A photo of the Republican playing a poker game during Tuesday’s Syria hearing went viral as the U.S. prepares for a military strike against the war-torn country, and a representative for TinyCo, behind VIP Poker, told TMZ that the company has seen a huge increase in downloads since.

“Senator McCain has great taste in mobile apps,” the representative said, adding that daily installations of the app increased by 30 percent since the incident.
