Saucy video

It’s Friday afternoon, so, as Mehitabel the cat said, ‘Wotthehell.”  Reader Gunnar sent a link to this funny (and slightly salacious) video. Because of the last frame, it’s been characterized on other sites as a commercial for hair products; but some commenter say it’s from a UK television show called “Smack the Pony,” about which I know nothing. But that sounds about right given the voice-over laughter and applause.

Somehow I think the guy would be even more appealing when the “lump” is revealed as a cat!

    Yep- that’s Smack the Pony.

    Plenty of clips on youtube.

    That is a show. I recognize the woman in the first seat from Coupling: Susan Alexander. Not sure what show it is.

    Funny. I just looked up “Smack the Pony” and recognize some of the faces from this video. So this is NOT an ad.

    Neither of my cats will ever be found near my privates…their claws are not to be challenged.

    This sketch is a parody of an ad for Pepsi (I think, it may’ve been Coke,) featuring “I just wanna make love to you” by Etta James which was featured on British TV channels a dozen or so years ago. The trio were funny , and as my erstwhile lover said: ” Everyone loves Sally Phillips.”

    Is that a kitten you’ve shoved down your speedo as a squirmy, playful, full-fanged substitute for a sock, or are you just happy to see me?

    Because if it’s a kitten, I’m gonna theorize that you actually don’t have anything “down there” after all, else you’d be in the fetal position right now, screaming like a little girl and writhing in intense agony….

    The kitten was probably in a tight Kevlar sack for the safety of both mammals.

      “mammals” – I’ve heard them called many different things but never that! 😉

      I vaguely recall that kevlar doesn’t protect against knives, only bullets….

    Doon Mackichan makes me laugh every time. Some of the sketches in which she appears are laugh out loud funny.

    So, this is what The Simpsons Crazy Cat Lady was on about with her election campaign: “…small business incentives… corporate accountability… cats in everyone’s pants…”
