Stranger than Fiction The Current Situation

Possibly the best use of “Yakety Sax” (a.k.a. “The Benny Hill Theme”) ever [UPDATED]

As news of upper class twit of the century and UK Prime Minister Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson’s (yes, that’s his real name) resignation was announced, some merry pranksters decided to blast Yakety Sax (a.k.a. the Benny Hill theme) outside British Parliament, and it was perfect.

Update: Hugh Grant (yes, that Hugh Grant) requested it!

According to ITV News:

It’s now emerged that Brexit protester Steve Bray played the iconic slapstick music outside number 10 Downing Street, after a request on Twitter from the actor Hugh Grant.

The blaring theme could be overheard in live news broadcasts as journalists delivered the latest developments in the political drama.

Mr Bray celebrated the return of his speakers on Thursday morning, a week after having them confiscated under a new law that aims to cut down on loud protests.
