NIKE FOOTBALL: WRITE THE FUTURE COMMERCIAL – A CURSE?

Nike released the pretty impressive Write The Future commercial, promoting the World Cup just before it kicked off in South Africa on June 11th. Now people are calling the commercial the ‘curse of Nike’,’ because most of the players featured along with their team mates didn’t perform well  (particularly England (waste men) and France) and have now all been knocked out of the tournament. Tennis champion Roger Federer also appears in the commercial and he was spectacularly knocked out of the Wimbledon []

UK TV: JAMES CORDEN’S WORLD CUP LIVE – CALM DOWN JAMES!

Source I have been watching actor/’comedian’ James Corden’s new World Cup Live show (TFI Friday rip off) on ITV 1 and ITV 4 since the tournament kicked off in South Africa on June 11th, and it is quite entertaining.  However his interviews with individual members from the ridiculously lacklustre England squad (waste men) has so far been embarrassing to watch. I know that James is a huge football fan and that footballers in this country are treated like “Gods”, but he seriously []

UK TV: N-DUBZ STAR DAPPY ADMITS TO LYING TO THE POLICE

  “Talented” super group N-Dubz will soon feature in their own Channel 4 documentary,  Being N-Dubz, and in the soon to be aired doc “role model” Dabby (real name Dino Contostavlos) reveals that he routinely gives the wrong information to police whenever he is stopped and searched.  “Up to this day we still give the wrong name and address,”  Why would you admit that on television?  He is going to single-handedly destroy that group with his worthless shenanigans and reckless talk. The man is a BORN IDIOT! []

UK TV: EASTENDERS INTRODUCES IT’S FIRST NIGERIAN CHARACTER BUT WHAT IS GOING ON WITH HER ACCENT?

BBC Soap Eastenders always seems to get wrong when they decide to integrate a black family into the show. The show recently introduced family members Mercy Olubunmi (played by Bunmi Mojekwu) and her Nigerian grandmother Grace Olubunmi (played by Ellen Thomas). I remember actress Ellen Thomas when she appeared on The Lenny Henry Show back in the late eighties. Since then she has starred in a multitude of different TV projects over the years, and has managed to bag some pretty big TV roles. Now she is playing a []

UK TV: REGGIE YATES ON BOARD TO HOST LATEST ITV 2 “CELEBRITY” VEHICLE

Brown Eyez reports that radio/TV personality Reggie Yates has signed on to host a pointless show about “celebrities” who still live with their parents. Yes you read correctly…  A SHOW ABOUT “CELEBRITIES” (Y/Z-LIST) WHO STILL LIVE WITH THEIR PARENTS. Via The Daily Star Among the participants on the ITV2 series are X Factor contestants Jedward, the Daily Star reports. Yates will allegedly set the stars challenges to encourage them to move into their own home. “Fans will be shocked to discover that []

British comedian Jason Lewis’ new comedy sketch show Sniggers With Attitude will air soon on the BBC, but in the meantime check out this clip from the show. Jason has found a strange new way to eradicate knife crime forever. Walk around carrying a giant black dildo instead. Funny. Your thoughts please…

UK TV: RAPPER TINIE TEMPAH APPEARS ON TONIGHT WITH JONATHAN ROSS / JAY-Z CLONE

Last Friday I tuned in to Tonight With Jonathan Ross and watched rapper Tinie Tempah perform with the Gorillaz. What I witnessed stunned me! Tinie had turned in to Jay-Z and stole Jay’s stage persona for the evening. It was actually embarrassing to watch. At one point I kept thinking is Tinie joking? Is he doing this deliberately? I understand that a lot of UK rappers look up to Jay and cite him as being a major influence, but this was just []
