Mock the Week - Musical Chairs

This has to be the funniest commentary I've seen Hugh Dennis do on Mock the Week. His voice over is flawless as he speculates as to what might be going on with the Queen and Jaques Chirac at the famous long table. Dinner, or something more fun?...

Toyota Ad

Bizarre ad for the down-on-its-luck car manufacturer. I'm sure with all the recalls Toyota has done recently, many Toyota owners will be feeling this has already kind of happened to them. I hope your car is in full working order.

Charlie Brooker and Weird Al Yankovic - I Can't Watch This

Clips from Charlie Brooker's BBC4 'Screenwipe' programme, where he reports back on the week's TV, no matter how awful it proves to be - brave, brave man. The song 'I Can't Watch This' by Weird Al Yankovic, is a parody of MC Hammer's eighties hit 'You Can't Touch This.' Cleverly done.

Charlie brooker on My Super Sweet Sixteen

The king of rants, Charlie Brooker, takes a look at the nauseating show known as 'My Super Sweet Sixteen.' If you've ever seen it I'm sure you'll be ranting along with him. If you haven't, this a pretty fair summing up. Also, I know what he means about people who use the word 'party' as a verb and the font Comic Sans. Wrong, very wrong. Here's a preview if you're not sure what to expect from Charlie - "Fortunately for whining snotface, the party goes with a bang: she enters looking every inch the cosseted flesh-waste she is, and her and her irritating scumbag friends party on into the night, dancing, shrieking, acting like pillocks, and generally making you feel like getting down on your knees and praying for a nuclear holocaust. " Refreshing, isn't it?
