Songs of Praise

Skip over this one if you’re easily offended, but this apparent clip from Songs of Praise has been doing the rounds recently, showing a congregation singing a hymn with subtitles for the words, it’s just that based on the subtitles they don’t appear to be singing the right words – in fact at times it seems like total nonsense…

The clip is actual Songs of Praise footage, just with alternative subtitles, produced by Adam Buxton. Initially it was started as a contribution to Time Trumpet, that went out on BBC2 last year – this being a segment that wasn’t finished at the time.

If you want a take on Songs of Praise from a previous generation of comedians, how about this much remembered (in our family anyway) clip of Rowan Atkinson from Not The Nine O’Clock News more than twenty years ago.
