Shooting Stars A-Team Sketch


Great sketch...... One question though, how legal is it put things like that on Google Video/You Tube?

It's not. But Youtube is apparently only at fault if they get a complaint from the content owner and do not take it down. That's apparently all the DMCA requires. I don't know how it works for content owned by companies outside the US, though. That would be an interesting question.

And I found the sketch suprisingly unfunny. Maybe it's the language barrier

Those episodes aren't even available to buy so I don't think people will care *too* much. You Tube have so many clips - the BBC must know about them. No?

Possibly, I'm not sure. I sure as hell don't have a problem with it!

Have you got much Shooting Stars stuff? I'd love to get a clip of the 'boy band' they created in one episode. All I remember about it was Will Self/Johnny Vegas era and featured Vic with a donut-style afro haircut.

As for not getting it issue. I doubt it's a language barrier thing, I'm sure there are plenty of people in the UK who don't find it funny. It's the surreal aspect of their humour that I find so funny.

Andy, I have loads of Shooting Stars - Series 2 and 3. I got them from UK Nova just last week so they are most likely still there but if not give me a shout.

Will Self doesn't appear until series 4 though (or perhaps later).

I found it very mildly amusing, but would probably have found it more amusing without the horrible, oversold laugh track.

That laugh track is the audience None of your Scooby-Doo canned laughter here!

Edit: Although is *does* get in the way, granted.

For historical reference only (and those who may have missed the onslaught earlier this year) here's a link to the Llama Song.

and here's the Wikipedia entry for those who were swept away and are still wondering what happened.

I LOVE the llama song! Thanks for linking that one, the one I had went dead. I also like the deadpan description of the Wikipedia article.
