Unless you have been in a comma for the last 2 months you will probably have noticed that The King’s Speech has been everywhere! The British film about King George VI, staring Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush, has stormed the box office and won pretty much every film accolade under the sun, including 5 BAFTA’s, 4 Oscars and a Golden Globe.
But who really cares? The film has been a smash hit at the cinema, but everyone knows that true film success nowadays comes online. If you can create a great YouTube video, make it go viral and get millions of viewers without even leaving your room, doing any PR or having a budget, isn’t that much more accomplished than getting people to go to the cinema?
You may not agree, but nevertheless you cannot deny that in recent years YouTube has become a kind of new Hollywood for the common man. And that is why instead of using this blog post to promote The King’s Speech I would like to direct you to The King of Shaves.
Some comic geniuses at The King of Shaves company have created a brilliantly funny parody of The King’s Speech which won’t exactly warm your heart but will split your sides.
Check out The King of Shaves video now at YouTube (it’s a lot cheaper than the cinema!)
