DANNY DYER IN BANDIT COUNTRY
Limerick rappers The Rubberbandits have a way of dealing with liars
Limerick rappers, The Rubberbandits think that Danny Dyer is a liar, and the only solution is to get him in a headlock. This is the premise of a new video by the duo that brought us House Outside that has already received 40,000 views on YouTube. The video comes from their forthcoming Channel 4 pilot that is due to air on November 30.
The video sees a big headed (literally) parody of The Football Factory actor telling tall tales about riding a shark to Greece, liberating beasts from zoos and inventing his own time machine. At the video’s climax, Danny commends one of the Bandits on his headlock technique with his hand outstretched only to retract it, calling him a “mug”.
The episode’s commission came after The Rubberbandits made some successful comedy ‘blaps’ for Channel 4 last year and was produced by the pair with Fr Ted director Declan Lowney.
Acting head of comedy Nerys Evans said Channel 4 were aiming to support these “stars of tomorrow as early as possible in their careers and given a crucial platform to bring them to the wider attention of comedy”.
