David Tennant and Bollywood
…the twain shall never meet. And here’s why.
Most people know of the song-and-dance routines that are the staple of Indian cinema. Well, the following clip is not Bollywood, but a BBC TV series starring David Tennant and Sarah Parish called Blackpool. It featured a number of songs and a few dance-ish routines.
As you can see, Mr Tennant — wonderful actor though he might be — comes up a bit short in the dancing department. For the uninitiated, he’s the odd-looking, tall, skinny one, leading the group of cops. (Oh, watch him go the wrong way at 1:33!)
I was thinking of this while walking home today, and had the gigglefits on the road. Thankfully, I had my iPod plugged in and people probably thought I was talking on handsfree.
This never fails to make me laugh out loud — no matter how down in the dumps I might be. Enjoy!
