Anything I could say would just ruin this.
Whaaaaaat?!?! UK Monsters, how could you have kept this from us for so long?
(Thanks for the tip, hazel.)
He was DEAD THE WHOLE TIME?
I hear it’s better the second time you see it!
Looking forward to the inevitable “brittle supervillian bone loss protection;” “extended colonial home in a modern forest preserve protection” and “devil attacks in elevators protection” insurance commercials.
Plagerized all of this. But, seriously, the commercial definitely needed more airbenders.
Meanwhile, in a parallel universe…
omg please let this make it to the Monster’s Ball!
Here’s your parallel universe
Let’s stop living forever…please?
It actually is better the second time! Granted, I’ve been on the verge of crying all day, but it almost made me shed a tear after a repeat viewing.
And then ghost dad, ghost raped EVERYONE.
This is all I can think of when I saw the title for this post:
Time to add “bl-bl-bl-bl-bl-bl” to the list of famous last words.
“Et tu, Bl-bl-bl-bl-bl-blute?” — Gaius Julius Caesar, Roman Emperor, d. 44 BC
“Rosebl-bl-bl-bl-bl-blud” – Charles Foster Kane.
“I see bl-bl-bl-bl-bl-black light” -Victor Hugo
“Jefferson bl-bl-bl-bl-bl-blurvives” – John Adams
“Mehr bl-bl-bl-bl-bl-blicht” —Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
so, ummmm, just cried a little.
that’s weird, right?
I know… who knew a rap video promoting a Martin Lawrence movie could be so moving?
I don’t know whether it’s just because I am visiting home for the first time in a while and seeing my dad again.
OR just because I am British and this sweeps straight to my lorry heart.
But there was a twinge in the tear ducts by the time the family hugged…..
And time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine
I need your love
I need the payout from your life insurance.
So maybe the fancy shmancy European health care Obama’s so gaga over isn’t so great after all.
I hope after I die I don’t have to watch the boring minutiae of my family packing for a trip.
That’s Your Afterlife.
What’s weirder is that over here he’s actually a well known comedian famous for sketch shows (or lorry shows as they are known here) so this is closer to ghost dad than you’d imagine
What is your version of “Leonard Part 6″?
It says a lot about the British film industry when even Kevin and Perry Go Large can be out-LeonardPart6ed by Johnny English.
Carry On Annoyingmouse
A sketch comedian like Hugh Laurie? For sketch shows, lets amend the spelling of that joke out of respect and call them “laurie shows”.
I didn’t realize he was the dad until the end. I thought he was the one promoting the life insurance, a white Dennis Haysbert if you will. Why are they ignoring this man in their home. Rude!
That’s what I thought! This really bummed me all the way out when I first saw it. I had to eat double helpings of clowns for breakfast just to get over it.
I had the twist figured out like 27 seconds in.
Crying gifs? Crying gifs:
Things I’ve learned from the hints the guest bloggers have dropped this week:
1) Thisismynightmare is a sex addict.
2) Brad Ofarrell is in the pocket of Big Beverly Hills Chihuahua.
3) Gabe Liedman is a serial killer.
4) Becca is a ghost.
What’s next? We find out Werttrew is actually a sentient .gif?
Werttrew is actually Amelia Earhart stuck on the island from Lost.
Every 108 minutes he has to post a .gif on Videogum or Something Bad will happen.
Are you trying to break my heart?
M Knight does commercials now?
Ooh, so CLOSE. it’s actually M. Night.
My Father died, resurrected and ascended into heaven – And all he left me was this lousy shroud.
Aren’t holidays brilliant? (So relevant.)
His rubbish dad.
Both from the third best sketch show ever, The Fast Show. Monty Python’s Flying Circus is #1 obvs, Kids in the Hall is third.
(Spike Milligan’s sketch show is probably second but he hasn’t seen it properly – Ed)
What does it all mean Ted?
I wouldn’t know about that sir.

Not being British but knowing who Paul Whitehouse is, I thought this commercial was a sketch. I was waiting for the funny, but it never came and now I just need to laugh. But I think I’m in the right place.
Is it family holiday, or are they just getting the fuck out of that haunted house?
“Maum, I phound my gogglers perched on the staircase handle!? I think father fought to came back so I shant forget them.”
I used to work for Aviva. They laid me off. I’m doing better then dad though.
