An End to Celebrity Culture (After Countdown)

Is he overdoing his medication? Look at the crazy smile…

UPDATE : Some are questioning if this is actually genuine. The full uncut and even more manic version can be seen on the Downing Street website.

    Well actually Tom, it would only be one eye reading from the autocue….;)

    … or not reading from an autocue- he looks like he’s doing a Blunkett, rolling his eyes and monging his face.

    From the way he’s bobbing and weaving around it looks as if he’s riding his “rocking arse!”

    My view is that the only autocue he has is a botched up selection of signs reminding him to smile…the way he makes an effort to smile on this is really quite pathetic. If this is to be believed, channel 4 at 25 is the most joyous moment of his life, have never seen him looking so happy…

    Give him some credit… you can see the classic “You are smiling too much Gordon” lockjaw jump into action, yet he overrules it…he is listening and learning…*cough*

    If Darling continues to be as dull as…well, Gordon mk I, they could always make use of “all the talents” and draft Carol in…

    Brown smiling is one of the most revolting things I’ve seen. It should have come out on 31st not 2nd.

    wow Gordo`s totally unconvincing smile can be equated to the happpy music played at a Nazi concentration camp as the jews are led in unsuspecting of their fate!
    the bigger the lie he tells – the bigger the smile!

    only this time we are aware of his deception. he must take us for complete and utter mugs!

    The other bizarre thing about this was that it was filmed in front of a green screen with the background being added in later.

    Why?

    Wow show business. I can see what you mean Guido. Anyone who watches coundown sure knows how to get down. You really have got him there. How will the public react to this decadent lifestyle of congratulating the hosts of countdown. This is surely the biggest scaandal since Mr Cameron was caught smoking cocaine off whores arse

    This deserves much wider coverage. As a former Labour supporter (don’t get too excited, I don’t support any of the alternatives and particularly not Cameron)I’d seriously hoped that all that Brown wouldn’t be as awful as I feared. I was wrong. He’s an awful lot worse.

    His handlers must be shitting bricks after this performance. Seriously scarey.

    This is from Browns biography (by Bower)…

    ‘[Charlie] Whelan’s hardest challenge was to encourage Brown to Smile… Undr Whelan’s tuition he had tried to force a smile during a television interview. Obeying Whelans precise instructions he conciously stretched his facial muscles, elongted his lips and stuck his tounge into his cheek in an attempt to simultaneously speak and smile. The result – his jaw moved sideways in an apparent disengagement from his face – prompted Whelan to scream at the television.’

    Jeez. Keep working on it Gordo, to the tune of Pulp Fiction’s “Gord, you’ll be a human someday…” bom pom pomm…

    ARGH!!!!!!!!

    I didn’t believe you so went to pm.gov.uk and it’s totally bizarrely legit.

    What on earth is GM thinking of and why the weird off camera auto-cue style just to make it appear spaghetti harvest like?!

    Stiff drink required now and a lie down in darkened room with a cool flannel.
