I have forgiven Jesus

From the ever-wonderful Joe.My.God. comes this frankly incredible 1984 Specialsesque ska performance by *koff* Sonseed, Jesus Is My Friend:

Once I tried to run
I tried to run and hide
But Jesus came and found me
And he touched me deep inside
He is like a Mountie
He always gets his man.
And he'll zap you any way he can... zap!

Surely surely surely this must be an elaborate fake/prank? The gayger counter is registering dangerously high levels of camp. The mengines cannae take it, Captain. Etc. Catchy, though. I'm particularly loving the near-motionless Keith-from-The Office backing singer on the far right - although the Osmonds-inspired lead (Sal?) is my favourite.

I'm rubbish at spotting well-crafted fake viral campaigns: I fulminated at the appalling McCain Girls video (I'm pretty sure if I turned up the volume, neighbourhood dogs would join in) before that was revealed as a hoax. I'm remaining sceptical about this one for the time being.

In other news, I've got a bit of a taste for Vauxhallville and may well pop along to this Thursday's The Lambeth Walk. Dress code 1863-1945? Blimey. I have a pair of 1940sish two-tone shoes and I might wear a cap. I imagine that'll be it, costume-wise, for me. Saving other theatricality for Hallowe'en, I think.
