I can't stop watching it...
It's... It's... Mesmerizing...
Just watch it again. Watch it again and keep focussed on Dudley Moore. He's the guy in the bottom right.
Did you watch it? Oh come on? How could you not find it funny?
Watch it again, trust me. It's like a Strokes album, it'll eventually grow on you.
Ha ha ha. That hat. That hat makes my jisto bulge.Whatever that means...
Okay, now watch it one more time, but keep focussed on the guy in the middle, cause he's pretty funny too.
Good. Now, if you've followed my instructions, you WILL NEVER GET THIS SONG OUT OF YOUR HEAD.
Oh, and when I said up there, 'he's the guy in the bottom right', I meant left. So WATCH IT AGAIN.
Holy shit, I had to come watch it again.
This is the most unexplainably funny thing I've EVER SEEN.
IT'S NOT EVEN THE TALE OF ALAN A'DALE! THEY JUST REPEAT HIS FUCKING NAME OVER AND OVER AGAIN!
I DON'T EVEN CARE THAT I'VE ONLY GOT THREE GIG ON THIS PRE-PAID MODEM! I'VE WATCHED THIS SO MANY TIMES. AND TELSTRA IS SO FUCKING EXPENSIVE. IT'S PROBABLY COSTING ME TENS OF DOLLARS TO REPEATEDLY WATCH THIS STUPID FUCKING VIDEO, BUT IT IS WITHOUT DOUBT ONE OF THE GREATEST THINGS I'VE EVER WITNESSED! NO GREATER COMEDY HAS THERE EVER BEEN THAN FOUR OF ENGLAND'S FINEST COMEDIANS, STANDING AROUND SOME GUY DRESSED UP AS A ROBIN HOOD LOOK-a-LIKE, REPEATEDLY SINGING HIS NAME OVER AND OVER AGAIN. I COULD DIE RIGHT NOW IN A STATE OF PURE BLISS. MY ENDORPHINS ARE MORE JACKED UP THAN ANDY DICK AT HIS MOTHER'S FUNERAL. I. FUCKING. LOVE. THIS. SONG. RULE BRITANNIA. LONG LIVE ENGLAND. FUCK ALL LEGACIES BEYOND THIS. WE DON'T NEED THE EMPIRE. WE DON'T NEED THE COMMONWEALTH. WE JUST NEED ALAN A'DALE ON SOME CHANNEL, NON-STOP, 24/7. I NEED THIS WIRED INTO BRAIN. I NEED EVERY SITUATION, CIRCUMSTANCE, EVENTUALITY TO PLAY OUT WITH THIS AS BACKING MUSIC. EVERY BIRTH I WITNESS, EVERY DEATH I OBSERVE, EVERY MARRIAGE, SEPARATION, BLESSING, CURSE, EVERY BEAUTY AND SIN MUST ALL BE ENVELOPED IN THE RICH, HEART-WARMING NONSENSE OF THESE FIVE RIDICULOUSLY DRESSED ENGLISH MEN SINGING THE MOST POINTLESS SONG IN HUMAN HISTORY. MY NORTH, MY SOUTH, MY EAST AND MY WEST MUST ONLY BE SCOURED BENEATH THE CLOUD OF THIS TUNE. IT IS NOW MY ALL. WITHOUT THIS SONG, I AM NOTHING. NEVER CAN THE MOMENT BE RIVALLED, WHEN I AM LISTENING TO ALAN A'DALE.AND I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHO THE FUCK ALAN A'DALE IS.
