Rich Fulcher, comedian and writer whom some of you may know from his recurring roles on "The Mighty Boosh," shares this wonderful little musical video from "2012: Mashed," a new show debuting 28 December, 11.40 pm on Channel 4 in the UK.
"It's got some very bizarre and interesting videos on the news topics of 2012," Fulcher explains.
"What's good about the show is it doesn't cull clips from the internet but commissions various artists and internet gurus to do their thing."
The clip shared here, "Lonesome George," is about the last Galapagos tortoise to die, "done retro video game stylee."
Here's the official blurb on the new Channel 4 program in which this clip appears:
Rich Fulcher introduces an insane look at the big news events of 2012 through totally original, commissioned media mash-ups created by the internet's most famous names including Dan Bull, David Schneider, cassetteboy and Rob Manuel.

As Oracle desperately tries to reanimate its wretched, failed attempt to destroy everything Sun Microsystems stood for and end computer science as we know it, there’s never been a better time to rock one of these “You Wouldn’t Reimplement an API” tees, which were an underground hit during the earlier trial.
That really craps me up. This guy is a real commodian! (Tronologic via /r/CatsMurderingToddlers)
