This (Chris Packham is a) Charming Man

July 8, 2009

Television wildlife expert and notable speech impedimentario Chris Packham earns indie kudos by dropping in references to The Smiths on BBC’s Springwatch programme. Some are so badly shoehorned in that they leave blisters (his response to ” “Bill Oddie’s” “text” “), but his ad-libbed use of Last Night I Dreamt Somebody Loved Me is fully┬ádeserving of the shit-eating grin he just barely conceals. For bonus entertainment, the female co-presenter’s forced laugh on 0:19 is bizarrely compelling.
