From the people who brought you this, here’s why office workers should never do a ‘witty’ workplace rap. Get ready to tear your own skull out:
Wow, this was a pretty freaky phone call, but thank the Lord all hamsters were saved. Look out for the wild horn-blowing. (Apologies for sound quality).
Definitely proud of the squeaks at the end….
Back in 2001, when I was working at Channel 4 in the comedy department, I was lucky enough to be able to commission the brilliant Waen Shepherd to make this amazing animation as part of the Comedy Labs strand. I recently watched it again and it’s as funny, spooky and horrible as I remember it. Just perfect…
Great music too from Waen too.
I love this. The dramatic scene is just so stilted and odd. Look out for Russell, the ‘pop singer,’ and when he plays the piano and sings, “Yes… I know…” quite mournfully.
Danke @tomparratt. Es war sehr gut.
This is seriously like something for some kind of cult. Not ONE of these people can hold a note. Also, ‘rapping’ while holding a recycling bin is something I have never seen before…
Thanks to @mylarmelodies. Altogether now… :L-S-La-La-La-La-La-L-S…’
And watch out for the Jerry Springer ending…
I love everything about this song. Everything…
Thanks Duncan for this great find.
Here it is – ‘The Timewaster Phonecalls’…
As you know, I’m fond of the occasional silly phone call. Well, way back between around 1996 and 2000, I used to call up the brilliant London (and now national) radio station, LBC, and well, muck about.
I’ve posted a couple of these calls before, but decided to do a sort of album thingy of lots of the calls for you all to enjoy/not enjoy. Anyway, here they are…
1. Putting Up Shelves
2. Knock Knock
4. Lady Di
5. Lionel Blair’s Turkey Sandwich
6. Reading from a Gardening Book
8. 29 Stone Man
9. Apricots & Peaches
10. Pieter Carp
11. Stung by a Wasp
12. Coronation Street’s Terry Duckworth
