Huliganov VCR virals 1/5 – The Big Picture


Original YT playout date: 28 March 2010
Duration: 1:06

This is the first of five advertising virals I made for the business game VCR. This business game is devised in Polish and the English version isn’t ready this year, but for people who speak Polish, you can take part for no money on http://www.vcr-gra.pl

To see the remaining parts, they will be uploaded onto http://www.rekinyvc.pl week by week over five weeks, and on my own channel some time later.

Featuring Przemyslaw S as Sergey and Agnieszka K as Ludmila.

Enjoy the shows!

Huliganov’s “Dyma Cariad Fel y Moroedd”


Original YT playout date: 1 March 2010
Duration: 5:57

It’s St David’s Day, March 1, again, and as every year Viktor Huliganov reaches out to the Welsh linguation with an acapulco song in Welsh, this time the famous Welsh hymn “Dyma Gariad Fel Y Moroedd” – Here is love, vast as the ocean. Bendygedig!

Assistance requested by Huliganov to help to spy out the Russian…


Thursday, August 5, 2021

Original YT playout date: 1 February 2010
Duration: 9:57

…text to the much-quoted (but only ever in English) poem “Lying To The Young Is Wrong” which *purports* to be translation of a poem by atheist partyline-hugger survive-all-political-weathers veteran bard Yevgeniy Yevtushenko, the man of whom it was said that his ego could shatter glass at twenty paces. But even this doyen of self-promotion does not display the Russian version of this famous verse on his website, nor anywhere for that matter. Was it just my overlooking the obvious, or has he censored it out? Or has he simply lost it? Help Huliganov find the putative original of this highly dubious piece of poetry, and maybe if you like do a video response reading it, and Huli will be most grateful, and will give you a mention on the next big Russian lesson video. Update: Thanks to Gunsandbullhorns and also Chesneywormbot, I managed to get this far:

Не надо говорить неправду детям,

Не надо их в неправде убеждать,

Не надо уверять их, что на свете

Лишь тишь да гладь да божья благодать.

Не надо по желанью своему

Морочить их несбыточными снами.

Учить не надо верить их тому,

Чему уже давно не верим сами.

Солгавший детям детство обезлюдит,

Подсунет им бесчестье, словно честь.

Пусть видят же не только то, что будет,

Пусть видят, ясно видят то, что есть.

Сладинка лжи – отрава в манной каше.

Писк лживый не прощайте у кутят.

И нас потом воспитанники наши

За то, что мы прощали, – не простят.

Huliganov’s England – 4/4 “Germy Claxon werry bed men!”


Original YT playout date: 21 January 2010
Duration: 10:24

Huliganov negotiates the underground railway on London, but comes face to face with none other that “Germy Claxon” himself! Or at least a poster thereof, advertising his latest bilious att-hacks. Huliganov is putting up with none of the nonsense this atrocious human being writes, and shows that even from his face you can tell that he is a no-good style character.

Huliganov’s England – 3/4 “The Man on the Clapham Omnibus”


Original YT playout date: 18 January 2010
Duration: 14:21

What the man on the Clapham omnibus might think of something was always as much a beloved benchmark of desired behaviour/legal decisions in English law as the famous WWJD is to believing people in America. However, the man on the Clapham omnibus is merely a fictional character, as Huliganov discovers. When he finally sees a Clapham omnibus – he’s in for a big shock, which shakes to the core his faith in the English legal system…

Huliganov’s England – 2/4 “London Calling”

Huliganov’s England – 1/4 “Ghost Town”


Original YT playout date: 17 January 2010
Duration: 13:14

We fly from Warsaw Chopinmall Airport to so-called “London” Luton, (don’t be fooled, it’s nowhere near London) and then go on to Hemel Hempstead to do a spot of Christmas shopping, and get a few special offers. One offering by the Specials in the 1970s talked about “this town is coming like a ghost town” – they could really have been singing about Hemel Hemsptead a quarter of a century later – all the old lovely things like the Pavilion and the old market, and the nativity crib all gone, and replaced with stupid tableaux of fluffy toys being attacked by wolves and nonsense like that! Quite frankly the way things are going, the town is lucky to have a Christmas tree. By the way, please note that even after all these years, I sang that song at exactly the right pitch – as the video proves. I didn’t autotune it. If you think that’s easy, you try it! Could always have been a fluke, of course…

Huliganov’s Schiphol


Original YT playout date: 9 January 2010
Duration: 37:29

I had a flying visit to this suburb of Amsterdam containing one of Europe’s most pleasant – or maybe least unpleasant is the more accurate way of putting it – airports.

Huliganov’s Philadelphia #5 – Meeting Mrs Merkel and a Pink Lady


Original YT playout date: 6 January 2010
Duration: 8:53

Here we see the bowling alley, the Union League, the inside of the Ritz Carlton and the journey from it to the airport, in the last of the series on Viktor’s visit to Philadelphia. It’s always nice to get the chance for an impromptu hobnob with one of Europe’s most important heads of state, that and a pink lady too was enough to go to anyone’s head in an evening’s entertainment.

Huliganov and Friends Christmas Variety Show


Original YT playout date: 24 December 2009
Duration: 19:50

“The show that is so dire that I would not dare to show it at any other time of year, although this is actually being reblogged on HTV in the middle of Summer.

You may be wondering where the Christmas Linguistic Quiz is, but owing to the fact that I had a strike earlier, which meant I went on strike, I didn’t do the preparation for that one early enough, which means we’ll roll over the prize money accruing on http://www.oioioio,com for next time. There’s very little there so far anyway. So I decided just to chuck together a few things that haven’t been played out yet some of which I recorded in the first half of 2008 and wasn’t sure whether to play out at all!

Maybe some people will find something to amuse them in there somewhere…”
