Hey BBC! WTF Is This?

The video above is a festive themed trailer filmed for BBC One to promote their Christmas schedule to the tune of Oliver’s ‘Consider Yourself‘, (should have been ‘Have A Word With Yourself‘)

There is nothing and we mean nothing about this trailer which gets us even remotely excited by the programmes on offer, but then there’s hardly anything on the Beeb that entices us anyway from Eastenders and Strictly Come Dancing, to Live At The Appollo and Dr Who, (oh yes we just did). Boring, staid, unexciting, routine British programming fare. It’ll be a bottle of two litre White Lightening cider and a blu-ray copy of Fast Five for us this Christmas Day.

An Open Love Letter To Mr Hicks

Following the recent developments, or non-developments to be more accurate, at Liverpool football club through US owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett it’s easy to understand why so many Liverpool fans are at boiling point. Here’s a protest video featuring some familiar faces addressing Mr Hicks directly and in no uncertain terms. The only thing which annoys us here at HMS Friday is that it invariably takes an issue like football to get this much passion from people in the UK.
