Assumably lovely TR commenter Jennifer just left this link as a comment on the Lamest Doctor Who Villains daily list from a couple of weeks ago, but I had to share it with the rest of the class. It’s clips of Doctor Who set to the surprisingly applicable Benny Hill theme, a.k.a “Yakkity Sax”?but with Eminem rapping over it for no discernible reason whatsoever. Who fans?I don’t begrudge you your franchise at all, but I hope none of you are fooling yourselves that Doctor Who isn’t goofy as all hell. This fan video is proof positive, and I’m pretty sure would stand up in a court of law.
P.S.?It should be noted if anyone sends me any fan videos set to “Yakkity Sax,” I will almost certainly put it on TR. I have a weakness. See you on Monday, folks.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
