When I first heard the radio version, I just couldn't get through the whole thing. I had to switch station to cleanse my ears.
Ska. Ska? Seriously? If there is one type of music that is more unrefined and unsophisticated than (most) country music, jazz or hip hop (a baboon could write these three), that has to be ska. All examples of ska music should be dropped into the Mariana trench and never spoken of before. Humanity should feel shame about ska and for the fact that this Shakira Rihanna hybrid reached number one in some countries.
Yap. The real duration of "Deal or No Deal" without all the crap...
(such as false suspense, stupid ramblings of the presenter in order to stall, cretin player trying to explain why he chose something which is inherently random)
...is less than a minute.
I hate these games. They're not educational. You don't learn anything new. They don't test you as a viewer. They just drag on and on and on... Plus, the players that go on them have a minimal chance of winning anything life changing. In contrast to the creators and the channel hosting it, who make a significant profit from each and every episode.
They've stopped making this totally random, idiotic game, right? RIGHT?!
Actually no. According to Wikipedia there are countries where new seasons were still being made as of 2013 (poor Estonia and Turkey).
Don't worry though, Endemol (Dutch-Italian company, creators of this, Big Brother and many, many others) will devise something new to kill our brain cells with.
"Roberta Mancino expresses her passion for fashion and her love of base
jumping in this truly extraordinary "High Fashion" GoPro video starring
Giovanni Silvestri, Andrey Karr, Luca Tondelli, and Maurizio Di Palma.
Watch them jump from Italy's Monte Brento..."
It was a truly novel idea featuring (intentionally) corny dialogue and (intentional) bad acting.
The random IKEA customers passing through, wondering what the heck is going on, are perhaps what made it even funnier.
This is hilarious. It is so rare for the BBC to make such a mistake.
From the Youtube video "about" section:
"Live on BBC News 24, BBC consumer affairs correspondent Karen Bowerman
interviews a man who she believes to be Online Music Expert Guy Kewney. ...he was Guy Goma, a graduate from the Congo who was there for a job interview instead. His expression once he realizes he's being interviewed on air is absolutely priceless."
"On 14 October 2012, Felix Baumgartner flew approximately 39kilometres (24mi) into the stratosphere over New Mexico, United States, in a helium balloon before free falling in a pressure suit and then parachuting to Earth.The total jump, from leaving the capsule to landing on the ground, lasted approximately ten minutes.While the free fall was initially expected to last between five and six minutes, Baumgartner deployed his parachute after 4 minutes and 19 seconds.
Reaching 1,357.64 km/h (843.6 mph)—Mach 1.25—Baumgartner became the first human to break the sound barrier without any form of engine power.Preliminary measurements show Baumgartner also broke two other world records. With a final altitude of 38,969 m (127,851 ft) (23.3884 miles), Baumgartner broke the unofficial record for the highest manned balloon flight of 37,640 m (123,491 ft) previously set by Nicholas Piantanida.He also broke the record for the highest altitude jump, set in 1960 by retired USAF Colonel Joseph Kittinger, who was Baumgartner's mentor and capsule communicator at mission control."
Joseph Kittinger is the voice guiding him in the video.
