Diff'rent Cunts

I wanted to make a video that celebrated our new government, but I'm on holiday this week so I'll just have to explain it to you.

Basically, it's a frame-by-frame remake of the title sequence of "Diff'rent Strokes" but featuring the leaders of our new parliament. Picture it: David Cameron drives round some shithole in his limo and spots two well-meaning, hard-working politicians (Clegg and whathisface)playing basketball. Cameron opens the door (in a cloud of cigar smoke and fox blood) and invites the young scamps to join him. Naturally (as members of a minority) they double-take, can't believe their eyes and all that - "Who, sir? Me sir? You must be crazy motherfucker!" - mugging the audience with mock surprise, until finally (and inevitably) they climb inside Dave's limo where they immediately make themselves at home, bouncing on the leather and sticking their heads out the sun-roof like a pair of dickheads. Meanwhile, the theme tune plays over the top with the word "Strokes" changed to "Cunts". Obviously, the idea is to seem inclusive, open-minded and kinda cute initially, with a view to becoming patronising, cynical and deeply sinister over time. Rather like this:

But for now... "The world don't move to the beat of just one drum.... It takes, diff'rent cunts to rule the... diff'rent cunts to rule the worrrld" (yes, it does!)
