The Boy With the Thorn in His Side on an episode of Blackpool
I have been meaning to post this video on my various internet incarnations for a year or so now but selfishly have kept it to myself. Blackpool was a series in the UK from a few years ago that incorporated pop songs by having characters sing along to them whilst acting out the plot. If you like pop music, David Tennant, David Tennant's Scottish accent, musicals, Elvis, or extramarital affairs, I really cannot recommend this show enough to you. I've seen a lot of television in my time, kids, and this show is one of the most entertaining I have ever seen and this scene in particular is great. David Tennant plays a copper obsessively investigating a Vegas-style casino con man played by David Morrissey, who has an in-the-closet son who gets in a bit of a jam in this scene. I really can't think of a better way to get this blog party started.
