  1. It's come to this ladies and gentlemen. The network that brought you the partition of India is now reporting on animals wearing clothes
    Hahaha comedy gold so amazing

  2. The BBC would be more impressive if they hadn't started hiring East Ender chavs who report "Obammer visits Chiner and enjoys a local sea cucumba."

  3. I went to Cambridge and have an accent that makes everything I say sound like bloody Shakespeare and they've got me spouting off this drivel? God save me and the Queen.

  4. I used to love that comedian when he was working with Conan. The disguting singer and wiki bear sketch were so funny. I regret he left coco

  5. God – thanks for this! Ha! I was frustrated with some friends' gossip yesterday and turned on NPR hoping to hear news of North Korea or Russia, or climate change! or our democracy! Something with more weight  than middle-aged people slamming each other. Something addressing my real concerns. Answers.The story was dog surfing. I heard an out-of-context description from a dog owner, and I joked to my husband, "man – they are talking about dog surfing."Then, I realized a moment later they were actually covering dog surfing. Ha! Well, we need some light things, too, right? As the world burns?

  6. Best sketch i have seen, you should repeat similar stuff with this actor and the anchor character…very funny….do it again

  7. Who the fuck in their right mind thinks that dogs surfing is news? Fuck all surfers and their fucking surfing dogs.

  8. Not from the BBC news, obviously a spoof (and not a particularly good one either) BBC news presenters do not have personalities and if they did it would be beaten out of them in their BBC news anchor training 🙂

  9. I think it's funny that people are worked up about the British presenter. He doesn't sound British. It's a comedy show people, the guy is probably American faking it with a BBC backdrop. LOL.

  10. Can we have American anchors be like that please? For the love God that is all Good and Holey!!! Please Jesus Christ!?!? For all that is good and pure. Help the Americans. Do you believe in the Lord!?!? YES I DO!!!!!!

  11. Simon McCoy is a bit of legend and does this a lot. Search YT for his name and you'll find him making jokes about 24 hour reporting on the Royal baby and when someone moved his tablet he did a report clutching a box of A4 paper. Great sense of humour.

  12. First off, that's not news……
    Second, he's a reporter, he's not supposed to care positively or negatively about ANY story. They're just supposed to relay information.
    The "news" and the "reporters" we're used to now have us 180 from where we should be. News is not supposed to be entertainment and uneducated opinion.

  13. I always avoid watching the news (I read it online instead) because of our stuffy reporters. I do love it when they outwardly show disdain though as usually they're super formal and professional XD

  14. BBC was like "well it's august and nothing important is going on, let's just see what those silly yanks are up to across the pond. dog surfing eh?"

  15. I think the best reporting BBC did was when they preemptively reported building 7 collapsing 20 minutes before it actually did on 9/11. You could see the building standing behind the reporter as she 'reported' it's future demise. Seriously, look it up. Kinda blew my mind. Who know's how/why that happened. I'm not a truther but that one is hard to explain.

  16. The BBC guy is Simon McCoy, he is known for being quite laid back and dry, a lot of airtime to fill on a 24 hr news channel. He was so funny outside the hospital waiting for Prince George to be born, he really did not want to be there and you could tell he thought it was pointless.

  17. Yo Americans, if you want to fake a posh (southern) English accent, you gotta pronounce yo' Ts. Spaghetti, not 'spagheddi'; committee, not 'commiddee'. There were hints of American slipping through, but lazy the Ts were a dead giveaway.

  18. The Dog Days of Summer in the west mean ENTIRELY different than the Dog Days of North Korea. FACT, in North Korea, the month of August is when you stop pampering Dogs and actually butcher them into Canine soup. Even modern South Koreans are horrified about this shared Korean Peninsula cultural pastime… Fact.

  19. See – Colbert supports "fake news" casting. You can't trust him! So back to the Truther Trumpcast with Hannity and Friends who'll never make me feel stupid I think accessorized animals is hard news…

  20. I might have to start watching BBC News again. I can't remember all the names of the news readers but this one is a cool drink of water. That was wonderful. I had to stop watching, particularly the morning news, because it made me feel like I was going mad.

    Simon McCoy – that's his name. I googled it. Bravo, Simon McCoy!

  21. I don't understand why the BBC reported that shit so I don't blame him for lacking the will to live because the BBC are better than that.

  22. That skit was completely unfunny. The guy pretending to be British had the worst accent ever. It was nothing close to a British accent of any kind.

  23. Jesus. Don't they have any actual news to report? More than 7 billion people on earth, institutions falling to pieces in the West, and these journalists look at surfing dogs?

  24. And here I was, thinking that the Harry Potter 5 scenario about a water-skiing budgie on the news was a vast exaggeration. What's wrong with you BBC!?

  25. Can't stand the BBC nowadays (any of their channels or programmes). Smug, scare-mongering, over-dramatic, over-paid presenters wagging the finger and shaking their heads at the British public like we're naughty children who must be told at all times what's good (or bad) for us! Stopped watching their propaganda years ago. Funny enough, I've felt much happier since! I'd like to say it's because 'ignorance is bliss' but it's actually because if you switch off all the white noise & rubbish that comes out of the BBC you can actually think straight, form your own opinion and seek more accurate & relevant information from elsewhere 😉 🙂

  26. This American comedy has made me lose my will to live. I will be needing a nice hot cup of tea to recover from this. And a scone. With jam. And whipped cream. In fact, I just want an afternoon tea TBH.

  27. A Dalmatian learning to ride a tricycle is brilliant. It must have taken a lot of effort to teach the animal to do that.

  28. It pisses me off how any mistake the BBC makes is instantly made fun of and will always be used in arguments, but Fox news, cnn and cbs has one sided arguments, reports on celebrity news daily, classic extreme capitalism, argues over kids movies and how it may affect the billionaires (seriously look up fix news on the lego movie)

  29. From the genius that is Simon McCoy. The guy is a goldmine for this stuff on BBC – plenty of YouTube videos of him.

  30. there has been a new kind of parrot developed in the last decade, its called the Mindless Lubturd Parrot and it can only repeat the group think of the loony left. Its brain capacity is to small for original thinking. The BBC is its handler and trainer. An even dumber strained is developing, its called the Stephen Colbert Parrot

  31. … so I slogged and crammed, and my parents paid through the nose for my university education, only to be crapped on, and insulted by my moronic bosses, and told to actually read this load of old codswallop.

    … and then you expect me to be jubilant ?

  32. Wow… I originally thought the video must be unfunny enough that I'll just view it and then..

    But boy.. Forget about the iconic BBC®'s newscast theme, sloppy graphics and visual presentation!

    The language itself gave it away! (And no, I'm not talking'bout Murican English like “network”.) No real BBC® presenter (yeah, that's Brit!) would be let off easily after saying stuff like “bloody hell” knowing fully well that PCR is uplinking! Let alone drinking "whiskey" as if it's a lifestyle/tourism show.
    But boy..: Was it funny AF?
