The Front Fell Off.wmv (2848KB) I hope this link works.
Okay, I'll try this again...
towed beyond the environment
some of them are built so the front doesn't fall off a'tall....
that is funny.
Senator Collins: Some of them are built so that the front doesn't fall off at all.
Re: Materials they cannot be made of:
Sen. Collins: Cardboard's out.
Interviewer: Cardboard's out?
Sen. Collins: And cardboard derivatives.
Interviewer: Like paper?
Sen. Collins: Paper, string, cellotape
Sen. Collins: And they have regulations about the minimum crew.
Interviewer: And what's the minimum crew?
Sen. Collins: Well, the minimum crew is one, I suppose.
Interviewer: So what made the front fall off?
Sen. Collins: A wave hit it.
Interviewer: A wave? Is that unusual?
Sen. Collins: At sea?! Oh yeah, chance in a million.
And they sailed out side of the environment.
Nothing out there but water, fish and birds
and now a fire.
but not in the environment.. no.
If you had presented it as a script, without the video, no one would have believed it . . . it's like something out of Monty Python.
Well, some of them are built so the front doesn't fall off them at all.
Wasn't this built so the front wouldn't fall off?
Well, obviously not.
How do you know?
Well, 'cause the front fell off! And 20,000 tons of crude oil fell into the sea . . . caught fire . . . it's a bit of a give away . . .
Monty Python is exactly what I thought too!
Unbelievably absurd. Thanks for the link!
everybody knows it's not real, right
check out some of their other work

The performers are John Clarke ("Senator" Collins) and Bryan Dawe (the interviewer). Just searched for it.
John Clarke and Brian Dawe do a comedy sketch each night on channel nine (?) in Aust at the end of one of our current affairs program usually dealing in a satirical manner with a current affairs topic.
John Clarke's most well known character is probably Kiwi Fred Dagg.
John Clarke is an afficianado of, and commentator for the sport of farnarkling.
John Clarkes Website has a number of short videos.
i watched quite a bit of the you tube vids, that's damn funny stuff
its not real?
You mean.. there IS an atmosphere out there? With those birds and stuff?
Great stuff! Thanks for it Mame. I watched all the available clips here - all good but none better that the "Front fell off.." one. Hilarious.
"... why?? because the front fell off, bit of a giveaway that..."
John Clarke is my personal god.
