Perhaps the finest Doctor Who/Benny Hill/Eminem mashup ever produced. (Collegehumor.com, possible NSFW sidebar ads)

I could not watch the whole thing.

That was pretty amusing. Thanks for the chuckle.

This assumes that there have been other Doctor Who/Benny Hill/Eminem mashups.

So that's what they mean when they talk about damning something with faint praise.

Not saying much. Best of the Web? Nope.

Ya know, this isn't really all that different from that one episode in series four with the giant red lobster/spider-thing woman that was trying to eat the doctor.

That was... something, that's for sure. Who knew "Yakety Sax" and "Without Me" fit together so well? Well, besides whoever made this.

I just...I mean...ok, that was sort of funny. Come on now. Amirite?

Not my cup of tea, personally.

But I'm happy that you took a risk and posted something out of the ordinary.

Thank you.

The old school Who fanboy in me squees at the choice of perfectly camp clips for the Benny Hill treatment, and the music is hilariously off center and unexpectedly suiting.

Last time I watched Dr. Who, the Daleks terrified me. Of course, I was also four.

The bouncing boobs banner (heh) to the right of the video really made it for me.
posted by brand-gnu at 12:36 PM on January 26, 2009


By its very description, it was obvious that this video was going to be aggressively silly. And it was, but the selection of Who clips was frequently inspired and the assembly showed more craft than most webvideo montages. It still ran too long, but then, I've never watched or listened to anything with Mister M&Ms that didn't. But if a visitor from another planet ever asks me what a "mashup" is, I'll point it to that video.

We approve. The author of this video shall be allowed to survive for an additional 366 days.

And actually, it could be more acurately described as "You got your Benny Hill in my Eminiem and my Doctor Who."

I agree more skill on display and it actually tried to match lyrics and images for some sort of effect. I very much liked it.

Yeah, the Doctor Who clips couldn't compete with the bouncing for my attention. Was not able to focus. Maybe I'll try resizing my browser so that only the boobs are visible.

For many years I did not have a TV (because I could not afford it, no smugness here), and that is when Eminem stared making it big. My only exposure to him was when the bus drivers had him on the radio and posters on record store windows.

For the longest time I was certain that Weird Al had built a persistent character, a stupid white rapper, one good for more than a single song. Like what happened later with Ali G and Borat.

See? I was right all along.

I'm not enough of a fan to really evangelize for him, but his first two records were excellent and for anyone who knows hip hop and isn't biased against including anyone too "mainstream", he's likely to be on a lot of people's top-10-MCs-of-all-time lists. He's an extremely skilled MC (watch the YouTube videos of his '97 Rap Olympics appearance if you doubt it), and I've found it's mostly people who haven't even listened to his music or even rap music in general who put him down. Often it's simply because he's white, which of course means he must be some kind of poseur.

Astonishingly well crafted. Probably the best done mashup of all times, ever. Can you imagine the amount of time it took to collect and select all those Who clips, and edit them like that? Adding Eminem on top of it was a brilliant masterstroke.

Yeah it was too long, but the guy who put it together had a lot to show. Amazing.

I remember driving along with my dad and my siblings back in the day and Eminem came on the radio. My dad goes "Isn't there some sort of black anti-defamation league to go after this guy?"
All my siblings unanimously sad "HE'S WHITE!".

Sampling Yakety Sax in pop music isn't unprecedented: The Benny Hill riddim saw some popularity this summer in dancehall circles.

I think I liked that about as much as I expected to hate it, if that's possible.

Ian A.T.: Great link -- No Tikkle is pretty great, but I can't really understand what that guy is saying.

Enjoying the Fresh Prince Gansta Rap much more (and this from a devoted Tom Baker fan).
posted by furtive at 4:14 PM on January 26, 2009


I already have a similar version of this song, with some kind of saloon piano or something instead of the Benny Hill theme. I never thought I might have get to start an actual collection of them.
posted by jinjo at 4:41 PM on January 26, 2009


Jinjo, I think you are referring to Freelance Hellraiser's "Marshall's Been Snookered."

Years ago, I knew I was gonna like Eminem when I worked for a certain music industry weekly and the editor in chief regularly lambasted the rapper as the coming of the anti-Christ.

Was the song mashup produced separately from the video? I found the video amusing, but I'm astonished by the skill at the audio mashup. It almost sounds like Eminem is singing, even in the lines where he's just rapping.

Excellent post. Now I just want to know who created the damn thing. Where are the credits? (This is not necessarily a rhetorical question. Maybe there's a link to the uploader's College-Humor account or something that I'm just overlooking.)

That was a huge improvement to that song.

I liked it.

To be fair, I also like Eminem. And Yakity Sax. And Doctor Who. Oh dear lord...I *am* the geek it was made for!

Well then, thanks!

Looks like the audio mashup got posted to YTMND back in 2005. The Dr. Who clips are still very well-chosen, though.
