I love Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer. I’m one of those weirdos who randomly quotes them, unable to hold back snorts of laughter while people (with the exception of about six of my family and friends) stare back at me blankly, sometimes sympathetically.
My favourite thing they’ve ever done is the Mulligan and O’Hare promotional videos. For those of you (quite possibly most of you) who have no idea what I’m talking about, Dermot Mulligan and Dermot O’Hare are an angry folk duo. Mulligan has man-boobs. O’Hare has a bad leg and used to have a bald wife, Rose, who left him for the bloke from Allied Carpets.
Without a doubt, the most hilarious song they ever came up with is the second song featured in this promotional video of the album Coffee Break, called Hotdog, what Hotdog?
Hotdogs for sale.
Hotdogs for sale!
But where? But where? But where?
Over there, by the beefburgers…
If you enjoyed this, I’ve recently discovered that Mulligan and O’Hare are on Facebook.
