We’re sure if you’ve been anywhere near the internet over the past few years, you’d must have caught at least one of the skits from hilarious upstarts The Midnight Beast.
And if you have somehow missed out on their genius, here is a recent video of theirs. I’m So Manly (I Make Men Cry) is a mickey-take of all of the cocky rock stars out there who think they’re so macho. As well as a rapping axe-wielder and some marvelous fake facial hair, resident fittie Ashley Horne spends most of the video naked (his modesty covered by a very smiley face).
If you like what you see, prepare to get excited, because a) we love them, too, and b) so do some nice people at Channel 4. In fact they like the YouTube stars so much that they’ve given them their own series.
In the show, which has been compared to the British Flight of the Conchords, the boys will play struggling musicians trying to achieve pop stardom in the face of “bizarre obstacles” and “unsavory characters”.
