While looking at Twitter today, @TheMichaelMoran linked to the video above, boldly claiming that “If you were still thinking of entering the Best Pop Song Of All Time sweepstake stand down. We have a winner.” Tears of laughter after watching it several times, I recalled a story from my dim and distant past.
When I was in charge of a fire engine, we got a call from HQ to go to an incident at a village we didn’t know. The radio transmit button was slightly jammed on as the driver said “Nowhereville*? Where the fuck’s that?”
The whole of the fire brigade heard it. Someone radio’d us to warn the transmit button was on so he quickly said “As I was saying Dan, I’m going to a fancy dress party and I will WEAR THE FOX HAT”
Genius quick thinking.
*Name changed in the silly attempt to disguise who might have been swearing on a fire engine. Pathetic, but I thought I should try.
The very talented @sillineysarah (Sarah Carroll) somehow managed to convince me to sing and dance for her.
I never claimed to be a singer or a dancer. If fact, anyone who has seen me attempt either will testify that this not as bad as usual.
It is a parody of the Robin Thicke explicit video for “Blurred Lines” which can be found on Vimeo and is basically the same but with naked models roaming around.
Please watch our version and like/share/tweet etc on Twitter/FaceBook/Down At The Library. If not to make me feel a little less humiliated, then for Sarah as she deserves a lot of credit for the things that she does.
