From time to time I like to blog about something completely unrelated to fatherhood – usually something relating to marketing or social media, but ocassionally something completely off-the-wall. This is just such a time.
So enamoured have I been of the brillaint “FENTON! Jesus Christ, FENTON!” video, I’ve spent the past couple of days enjoying the plethora of spoof / parody / mash-up response videos that have been springing up. So, since there seems to be a lot of people doing the same, I thought I’d compile the best of the best.
As usual with parody videos, there are a LOAD of rubbish ones too, so consider this your filter for the crap – all of these are rated “pretty funny” to “absolute genius”… Oh, and yes – it’s definitely Fenton, not Benton – the cameraman from the video confirmed it on Absolute Radio this week!

As a father and a blogger – and a former movie reviewer – I was very excited to see the trailer of ‘The Other F Word‘ recently. I can’t remember the last time I saw a GOOD documentary about being a dad – apart from the odd “Fathers 4 Justice” report on something like Panorama, and the focus of those is never particular pro-dad.
‘The Other F Word’ is a documentary about what happens when a generation’s ultimate hell-raisers become dads – the ups, the downs, and the parallels to their own childhoods.

This afternoon I was lucky enough to have a bit of time of work, as I was due to look after Robert while Sara had a parent’s evening at work. So Robert and I decided to make the most of the good weather and spend some time in the garden.
I thought it would be fun to film, and speed-up – like I did with our Christmas dinner prep over Christmas.
You’ll have to decide for yourself whether or not it was “fun”, but Robs and I certainly had a good time. It certainly makes for interesting viewing from my perspective, to see what Robert gets up to when I’m out of his eye-line…
Last week’s choice of a Ted and Ralph sketch seemed to go down particularly well, and in my opinion you can never have too much Ted and Ralph at Christmas. I think I might have cried a little bit during this episode. When are they going to bring out the Fast Show and/or Ted and Ralph on Blu-Ray, so I have an excuse to buy them again?
Another in a LONG line of classic ‘Flight of the Conchords’ videos…
Bret, she was looking at me, she had her eye on my knee
Dawg, I am sorry, she had her eye on my guns
Oh, you’re loco! She was checkin out my buns
No bro, she had her eye on me
She had her eye on me
Well how could she have her eye on both of us?
Wait a minute, you talkin bout the girl with the lazy eye?
I think she might have had a slight little lazy eye
We’re both in love with a sexy lady with an eye thats lazy
The girl thats fly with a wonky eye
She’s smokin with an eye thats broken, I think it’s hot
The way she looks left alot
