It’s a young man’s game, innit

“I’m a singer. I’m a performer.” Accused of taking part in a £1.75m armed robbery Brian Hibberd had an unorthodox defence. Apparently it worked.
Mr Hibberd said that he had quit pop music when he became bald. “It’s a young man’s game, innit?” But he claimed that he still did voiceovers; leaning towards the witness box microphone, he growled: “Some of them are there to hurt you, some of them are there to help you.” It was, apparently, a line from the film Transformers, and an example of Mr Hibberd’s current — and wholly legitimate — work. “I do stuff like that,” he told the jury, without explaining how that would prove that he had nothing to do with an armed robbery.
