I rarely do a lot of different voices on one video, but this is one occasion. I do what I hope is a passable
impersonation of David Attenborough (I called this character David Uncleborough and he comes up a couple of times in my films), and also I do a South African, some Huliganov and some Pierre Delauney.
The Hout Bay cape fur seal colony is a beautiful thing to see. This is the part of the world where the great
white shark preys on these creatures, even jumping out of the water to attack them. We didn’t see any of them today, though.
The mountains around are the twelve apostles, very majestic neighbours of the Table Mountain.

Pierre Delauney’s tribute to the Italian team



Production date: July 2006
Playout date: 9/7/2006
Camera: Fuji Finepix
Camera: Logitech webcam
Post Production: Small amount of WMM
Location: Living room at home
Soundtrack: Sang “Non ti scordar di me” by Gigli
Languages used: Italian

Zey seenk eet’s all over? Eet eez now! Pierre’s back for his second video, saying what he thinks about Zidane’s “final bow”, and presenting the song “Non ti scordar di me” by Gigli, popularised at the world cup twenty years ago by the Three Tenors.

Now obviously Pavarotti sings this far better than I do, he may have been unwell at the last world cup, and as you will know, his sad demise came not long after.

The maestro sadly missed

 

Recently the four yearly event of the world cup came round again – amazing how time flies. The viewer figures showed the second five hundred views on this happen within a couple of months, and since then it’s plateaued off and had only a handful of views in two years.

Introducing Pierre Delauney!



Here we have for the first time the fourth “persona” on the channel, after Viktor Huliganov, Thomas P. Jameson III and Peter Paczek. I didn’t do much with this character, but he is based a bit on an old French teacher of mine from school days – even some of the gags are from that guy, and I liked that teacher a great deal. I think he appears only twice, but he can always re-appear in the future. One day I’d like to do more with Pierre Delauney.

And, for those of you who are wondering where the pun is – the pun is in Polish. Pierre Delauney sounds like “pierdolony”.
