So, although not actual millions, tonight could win you £390 which is enough to fly to any part of Europe and back and still get tremendously drunk once your there. Maybe even accommodation although if you pick a 24-hour city like Berlin, there’s no need.
Meanwhile, Tinchy Stryder, what’s that all about? Well, I can report that I got 42 seconds into his song before having to stop it cos it is shite.
Not that my opinion will matter to thon TInch. A quick Google for ‘Tinchy Stryder Net Worth’ brings up $4 million dollars, which is enough to fly to Berlin and get wasted every day for a year. With (good) accommodation.
9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £90. Cheat: One of the music round bits is by Alyssa Reid. See vid below:
I’m listening to the song just now as I type.
And I’m thinking ‘Why the hell did I put this in the music round? It is awful‘.
Perhaps I was thinking it would relate to the younger quizzers (it came out in 2011 which feels like three minutes ago in my rapidly aging world) and perhaps I was thinking it would simultaneously strike a chord with older quizzers (the far better original came out in the 80s).
Jesus it’s awful.
It’s got autotune, it’s got the weepy-crying voice beloved of modern singers, and a completely inconsequential rapper doing a totally meaningless rap break.
It’s the sort of music you like if you’re into real estate. It’s the kind of music they like in New Zealand. It’s probably on the a thousand Spotify playlists put together by people who have never been on a European city break, preferring instead to tan their bodies and flush their minds. I can be this much of a snob.
The experience of listening to the song compares unfavourably with doing the four times table over and over and over again. And I hate the four times table. Three, I’m fine with that. Five, nae bother but the four times tables sucks balls.
The song has stopped now, and so has my hatred. See you tonight.
First in an occasional series of reports detailing what the winning team did with their booze voucher.
LOCATION: The Argyle Bar
DATE: Last Thursday
2 x Tennents
3 x Bunnahabhain
1 x Black Sambuca
1 x Tequila
Nice work. I know nowt about whisky but apparently Bunnahabhain is a good one. The Sambuca and the Tequila add urban street edge while it’s all backed up with a pair of basic pints, the kind of pints that built Scotland into the international superpower that she is today.
