I didn't think it was even possible to vid The Thick of It, but this is GLORIOUS. The hand gestures! The failures at walking! The flailing panic! Malcolm's crazy eyes! And the song choice is absolutely inspired to tie it all together.

I didn't think it was possible to vid it either, I just wanted a TToI vid so much that I tried anyway. Glad you like it!

This is so amazing! Thank you so much! I do quite literally have tears in my eyes right now from laughing. I just love this. The song is perfect. I completely adore how pretty much every character is in it, and how the editing captures the crazy panic of the show. I particularly love Malcolm's bit of focus in the middle comparing him to a cat, and the chase sequence toward the end, and the British public being a bit fed up with them which is completely perfect. This is truly wonderful and I completely love it. Thank you!

You want to know a funny thing? I picked this based just on the request and not on familiarity with your previous work, but as it turns out, my favorite festivid this year (the brilliant Shaun vid that I completely love to pieces) was made by you. So in some way, you made a treat for me too.

This song was specifically written and recorded for this show, wasn't it? Be honest now.

Okay, honestly: I always assumed it was about erectile dysfunction. Then again, that could be me.

Hee! Super fun and a fantastic song to use for the show. I know the shaky camerawork on the show can't be easy for vidders to work with, so I'm really impressed by how well you managed it here.

I cackled through the whole thing. Perfect timing! I'm still trying to decipher the lyrics, but the section with Malcolm is inspired.
