Continuing in the vein of Joe's "Just sharing a Who-related observation on a Who list that only has 23 posts on 5 different threads so far this month." comment:


On this UK Channel 4 sketch show last Friday night, I counted no less than 8 Who references!


One sketch was a parody of the "Frost/Nixon" film trailer.  But, the interview / interviewees were replaced by classic, very British, interviews.  This sketch format was then repeated three times during the show.  Eg: "Parkinson/Emu", "Wogan/Grace Jones(?)", "Aspel/Oliver Reed".

But the best bit was: each trailer had the same soundtrack, starting with Baba O'Riley, ending with The Seeker.  Not only was it good to hear those songs, but it also made for a good satire on all film trailers having Who soundtracks nowadays.


Also in the same show, a fake news broadcast included the ticker-tape headline which read: 

	"Pete Townshend still not released his autobiography.".  

This ran across the bottom of the screen twice.  Almost funny.
