    this recalls the dated “archive film” documenting the spaghetti trees

       The tattoos are soo 1960’s, eh.  And the dust/scratches are all perfectly circular…

      Everyone knows that ukelele strings are harvested from cat trees.

    An obvious rip-off of the 1950s ‘spaghetti harvest’ April Fool. See it here and compare.

    rip off or recollection? You decide.

    I haven’t seen the video, which I would assume has some sort of credits for the production crew, cast and etc.

    I would have to see if the original film was credited to decide whether or not the video is an homage/reinterpretation to the original, or ripoffey. If they omitted credit for the original it should be a simple fix.

    The chap says temporary, not temp’rary, so we know it’s not authentic 1950s BBC English. That secondary stress on the third syllable is always a dead giveaway, that. Apart from the vowels of course. The vowels are all wrong. Chap sounds like a tradesman pretending to be posh, don’t’ch’know.

    I find it interesting that this gets called a “riff” when other people have been denounced for similar work without giving credit to the original creators.
