Rock my C*ck

Blogorrah has posted some videos that I guess are being aired on Oirish TV, and by jesus they’ll fit right in if that’s the case. Here’s what I don’t get though: I presume that these videos aren’t supposed to appeal to 34 year old fuddy-duddies like me, but who are they supposed to appeal to? Presumably it’s ‘yoof’, but surely they’re even more patronising to yoof than they are to me? I mean, seriously, rock salutes? The only people that think rock salutes are cool these days are Spinal Tap fans. (And rightly so.)

The PR people that came up with this shite should be shot (along with most of the rest of them), and Rick O’Shea should be put in charge; since he’s the only one that was in any way entertaining. Seriously, give Rick the camera, and fuck off and get a proper job. Something useful and inline with your skillsets, like a firing range target.

UPDATE: I’ve just been listening to Rick’s show and he had Bosco on about the Rock the Vote business. Yes, Bosco. And they were talking about free lollipops. Are they trying to be ironic or something? Because it’s really not working. I find myself wondering if any people in the yoof category actually know who Bosco is?

(Thanks for the pointer Twenty.)

  1. You’re talking garbage mate, complete and utter garbage – for the first time a group of young lads and girls have come together to do something – all of them are under 25 – that’s right all of them – they come from diverse backgrounds spread all over the country with limited to no professional experience – I’ve been in to meet them and I can tell you this: they have worked non-stop for three months, non-stop, and they have achieved a gargantuan amount.

    They’ve been all over the country, made innumerable radio and TV appearances, have had too many articles about them in the press to keep track – in short with almost no money they have turned up the volume in a massive way when it comes to youth voting. Sure there are problems, but my god for someone to get up and criticise what they have done is just a step too far. Suddenly major papers, radio stations and tv stations are constantly talking about the youth vote, that wasn’t the case in 2002 or prior to that. These guys have made it an issue and full credit to them.

  2. Hey, fair dues to them for trying, and they certainly got some things right. But these videos? No. They’re targeted at sub-eighteen year olds that can’t vote, and imbeciles that shouldn’t.

    BTW, here’s a tip for you when posting on people’s blogs: don’t start by calling their opinions “garbage”. And don’t call people ‘mate’ unless they’re actually your mate. Better yet, don’t call people mate at all, it’s a stupid word.
