ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
A parody of the theme song from The IT Crowd (a fantastic Channel 4 TV series which you can buy here). "This is a collaboration between Superpowerless, Sparkles* (From Area 11), MC Wreckshin, B-TYPE and Happi."
(thanks, Tara McGinley!)
FYI Channel 4, not BBC :)
Pre-digital TV a statement like that wouldn’t have been that confusing (people would have parsed the ‘Channel 4′ and ignored the ‘BBC’) but these days there *is* a BBC 4 (pre-digital it was only ‘1’ and ‘2’) so it’s a little misleading.
I hate to be a pedant but I will anyway. Its “Channel 4″ not “BBC Channel 4″. Whilst some of the UK TV License Fee goes to Channel 4 its not part of the BBC and is never referred to as BBC Channel 4. Perhaps you where thinking of BBC 4 is a different channel altogether.
This makes me happy. I smiled at the Peter File reference in the song.
If we are going to correct some things then it should be noted that the tv show doesn’t have a “theme song”, so this parody is rather a rap set to the theme tune of the IT Crowd.
this is an appalling rap , and an appalling beat. I don’t care about their fan status. I am also a huge fan of the IT Crowd, but I’m also a straight-up-and-down B-boy. this video is bad and they should all feel bad.
I guess we’re just more, up up down down left right left right b-boys.
Thanks for posting us on the website BoingBoing! <3 :D
