12 Aug Olympic sailing through an Irish lens
My kind of Olympics commentary:
[UPDATE] Thanks to loyal reader JC for pointing out that this brilliant spoof is the work of Chris ‘The Viper’ Tordoff of the Hardy Bucks, an Irish mocumentary TV series akin to Nova Scotia’s Trailer Park Boys. It centres on five “scheming, drinking, work-shy procrastinators from fictitious ‘Castletown’ in County Mayo, Ireland.” Backstory here and here.
IrishCentral reports that the spoofed sailing commentary first appeared on Vimeo, but was taken down, either by Vimeo acting on its own or on a take-down demand from the International Olympic Committee. This provoked a profanity laden audio retort from The Viper.
