According to Tesco’s Christmas cringey ad, the UK is suffering from a “joy shortage”. Undisputed, I’d say, but not particularly relieved by Joe Lycett, you don’t expect from TV comedians.
He just wore a Sesame Street/Big Bird outfit and (apparently) dropped £10,000 in the shredder. Since then, he has confirmed that he does NOT REALLY shred all that cash.
As it happens, Lycett doesn’t look particularly resentful as he just finished, supposedly destroying all that lovely money in a matter of seconds. He spends money faster than Elon Musk buying a social networking site.
To protest Beckham’s participation in the Qatar World Cup, it was – in a way – quite effective in attracting public opinion (as you can see here).
Lycett understands the media usually does not undermine it. I especially enjoyed the live session where he toppled Liz Truss and in front of her was the then-British Prime Minister appearing on Laura Kuenssberg’s Sunday morning political show.
There are very few people in public life who can simultaneously insult the BBC and Daily mail with such naivety. He did a similar thing, he changed his name to “Hugo Boss”. Now it’s Beckham’s turn to be criticized via benderslikebeckham.com
Lycett knows that his stunt and related videos have attracted over £10,000 in media for LGBT+ people visiting and working in Qatar.
The Gulf nation may have harbored hopes that hosting the World Cup would help boost their reputation and generate some favorable news, but all I saw were human rights stuff. treat migrants over animals and murder happens to them. Being gay. And you can’t get a drink. Not an ideal vacation destination, even the 50 degree heat.
Lycett, in his down-to-date, down-to-date composure, has inserted a sharp knife into Beckham on the issue of LGBT+ rights – after all, he’s married to Victoria Spice Beckham, as Lycett points out “the gay thing.” as much as a human can do”.
£10,000 represents £1,000 for every £1m Beckham will receive from preparing for the World Cup, and Lycett has found a clever way to highlight how his priorities can be achieved without no need to worry about 10,000 pounds, think 10 million pounds can help the poor. from the Indian subcontinent literally perished by the heat of the construction sites, almost a modern version of the Burmese Railway.
Still, I can’t help feeling that Lycett’s stunt doubles as Beckham, still securely stored in the Emirati coffers in Doha, only aired to declare some ill-gotten verdict about the situation of the Brazilian team this year.
Beckham doesn’t even acknowledge Lycett’s existence, let alone stunts, and would never be embarrassed when a guy looks a bit shy in nature.
So it doesn’t really matter how much money Lycett claims he destroys – Beckham continued. Furthermore, I’m not sure the Beckham fanbase cares that much.
Gary Neville was even more humiliated because he wasn’t smart enough to appear on I have news for you and makes the obvious fact that “you don’t have to go get Qatari money to highlight abuses”.
Neville twisted like he was stuck on the Doha highway. But, again, it makes no difference for Neville to fulfill his contractual ITV obligation to appear there.
The same goes for Gary Lineker, and the fact that the BBC, Gareth Southgate, the England team, the Cymru team, Cristiano Ronaldo, sponsors like Budweiser and McDonald’s, Gianni Infantino and others are involved. this Fifa circus is about to be destroyed.
Lycett won’t stop this hoax, or Beckham’s hypocrisy, but at best he can be content with the fact that this disastrous tournament is the mother of own goals for Qatar. Even Sepp Blatter turned down the World Cup.
Qataris have spent a total of $200 billion over the past 12 years building stadiums and related infrastructure for the World Cup.
The aim is to enhance their image and give their small – but resource-rich – nation a friendly, cuddly image. They could have asked Joe Lycett to cut the money on YouTube.
With dollar bills of the right denomination, it will take you about 90 minutes.
