Last night, the truly dreadful One Show on BBC contrived to do a piece on the forthcoming ‘Four Lions’ comedy film by Chris Morris.
Despite the film not being seen by a single person they interviewed, they tried desperately to stir up some cheap pre-release ‘outrage’ by showing the trailer to a selection of tut-tutting, pre-primed young Muslims, some people in the street and a serious talking head who was already outraged in behalf of others.
No one had seen the film, no one knew what it was actually about, yet this shitty excuse of a show that makes “That’s Life” look like Newsnight persisted with their attempts to whip this pointless non-story into something substantial.
It was truly desperate stuff. Will someone please put this awful show out of its misery soon?
Here’s the trailer for the film:
