Many of us of a certain age were deeply saddened by the passing of Rik Mayall. His appearances in such iconic shows as A Kick Up The Eighties, The Young Ones and Blackadder, to name a few, shaped our formative years and had a huge impact on British comedy history. He will be missed.
Once more unto the pitch dear friends
But we found out we can keep Rik Mayall’s legacy alive with the help of a social media campaign to get his football song, Noble England, to number 1 in the charts during the this year’s World Cup. A social media campaign has created a massive groundswell, showing how just much the man was loved. The song’s play on the Henry V speech has a uniquely English tone and it’s a fitting memorial to someone who created uncountable side-splitting, hilarious memories. The social media campaign for RIk Mayall’s World Cup single includes a Facebook page, so you Like that, and it’s kicking off on Twitter big time – follow @RikMayallForNo1.
We suggest you buy a copy of Noble England now, or risk getting hit in the face with a frying pan.
And finally, may I just say, That’s a smashing blouse you have on.
