Sometimes I come up with genius ideas.
This is not one of them.
A couple of days ago, I noticed a Facebook post from one of my friends who had his music collection rated by Alan Partridge. What a brilliant idea, i thought and tried to download the app to do the same (well i like Gary Numan so I reckon I was on safe ground)
However it was Apple only, so frustrated and a little bit sad, I searched the Android Market for Alan Partridge stuff. Plenty of soundboards so I downloaded a couple. One of them allowed me to set the phrases as notifications. So now my message tone is Alan saying the title of this post.
So today at work, I am listening to dance music and a message comes through. Alan says the words and it fitted. I mean really fitted into the tune, almost like it was a deliberate sample.
Little things and all that!
So why not try it yourself. Download a soundboard and play some dance music. then at random, just play one of the phrases “Tell me about the Ladyboys” and ” Scum, Subhuman Scum” work well too.
In fact to help you get started, the track below should work very well. A forgotten Bronski Beat classic (after Jimmy Sommerville left) but it is a high energy and very 80’s piece of cheesy disco.
I love it unsurprisingly.
I reckon Alan would too….until he realised that they were gay and then he would react accordingly. Well his newspaper of choice is the Daily Mail remember!!
