Over the last few weeks I've tended to forget that Facelift was on, and have either missed it, or just caught the end. Last night my wife wanted to get on my computer, just as Facelift was starting. For once, I was glad she did.
Last night's episode was a classic - from the parody of the TV ad where the woman throws a tanty in the supermarket aisle, to the Muldoon/Clark comparisons, to the Mathew Ridge meets David Beckham skit, there were belly laughs aplenty. My personal favourite was Clark morphing in and out of Muldoon's persona while meeting with Mallard and Cullen. Then this morning, I found a wee treasure! You can log on to tvnzondemand.co.nz, and watch the best bits again and again! Here's the link to last night's "highlights package":
The Clark/Muldoon skit was pure genius - a throwback to the best days of David McPhail, and his portrayal of the "old tusker", and evocative of many memories of the good old days! The money line "I know - I'll get pissed and call a snap election! John Key won't know what's hit him. Vote for me - warts and all heh, heh, heh" was brilliant. The worm has certainly turned against the PM!
