The Old Spice mandroid’s fraught romantic adventures have brought much joy to the StopPress towers, although some have wondered whether it’s sexist or a parody of sexist ads featuring the product as an aphrodisiac. Now he (it?) is back with a new sports talkshow. Plus: the wonders of the Late Night Big Breakfast.
Browsing: Late Night Big Breakfast
The Late Night Big Breakfast, a pisstake of morning chat shows that started off on Moon TV, is set in a furniture shop and stars Leigh Hart, Jeremy Wells and Jason Hoyte, is two episodes in and it’s a study in ridiculous, awkward and often-physical humour. Some, like the Herald’s Greg Dixon, haven’t seen the funny side of the interrupting hosts, the confused guests, or the surreal segments. But others seem to like it. And while parodies of advertorials are low-hanging fruit from a comedy perspective, this industry can no doubt see the funny side of Hoyte’s beskivvied perfomances in Health Corner.
