Phil Collins’ Viral Spawn

A few weeks ago we here at “One More Knight” were delighted when a youtube video featuring the “Worst Wedding DJ EVER!” took the Internet by storm, complete with Phil Collins’ musical accompaniment. Breast slapping and “In the Air Tonight” once mutually exclusive pleasures had been combined for the ultimate exercise in comedic pleasure. The video stood quite well on its own and thankfully didn’t inspire an Internet meme of inferior moments.  It did, however, inspire one comic tribute featuring Jerry O’Connell and his better half, Rebecca (you have the right to) Romijn (Stamos).

Now we’ve never been great fans of Jerry O’Connell save for maybe his work as that pudgy kid in Stand By Me and on “Sliders“, but we did get a bit of a chuckle out of this parody of the wedding DJ video that did not really call for further parody. That being said, for a lazy, hot summer Friday…no Knighthood begging…just comedic entertainment. Enjoy.

A Little Phil Collins Goes A Long Way

May 14, 2010 1 comment

We here at “One More Knight” are pleased to announce that over the past twenty-four hours Phil Collins has gone viral. Unfortunately for us,it wasn’t our quest to get Phil knighted that captured the hearts and brief attention spans  of the world. Rather it was this video of the “Worst Wedding DJ EVER”:

Now we’ll be the first to admit, that without the audio excerpt of “In the Air Tonight” the video itself would be pretty funny if still accompanied by the conga line music. The audacity of the DJ in the breast-slapping department, though not necessarily our cup of tea (as our main comic interests lie mainly in high-brow humour), would in and of itself be grounds for uproarious laughter.

That being said, something magical happens when  Phil’s haunting masterpiece off his 1981 album Face Value replaces the wedding audio track so that his killer drum solo coincides with the actions of Stardust Entertainment’s resident mammary abuser. The video leaps into the stratosphere of comic timing and turns this ever-so-brief moment of ridiculousness into a classic web moment that will forever offer proof that just adding a little Phil Collins to the mix goes a long way.

We can only hope that those in the office of the Prime Minister get wise to this lesson imparted by the video editor when considering who to recommend for Knighthood.  Think about it Prime Minister Cameron; something magical is bound to happen when you add a little Phil Collins to the honourable rolls of the United Kingdom’s distinguished nobility. Your approval ratings will surely soar into the stratosphere just as adding Phil Collins’ music to that video sent it soaring into comedic legend.  What better way to ensure your spot in history as a beloved British Prime Minister than by turning up the volume with a little Phil Collins praise. We can feel it in the air tonight. Can you?
