Trivia

For the shot like Ant and Dec and the Davina McCall interviews in Series 2 and the "Crappy Days" spoof in Series 3, the camera was set up in one place. Leigh said his lines in one place, swapped costumes and did his other line in another place and so on. The images were then fused together to give the impression that Leigh is in many places at once.

In the Michael Jackass episode where Michael Jackson is "Moonwalking", the camera crew is reflected in some shop windows as the pass. See more »

Abstract Impressionism
20 August 2003 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Is there any sense in asking why Michael Jackson has been reincarnated as a profane version of his eighties self or why Southampton-born Craig David has a Yorkshire accent or why Michael Douglas sounds like Woody Allen? Is there any point even in pondering why the Transylvanian born Avid sounds Portugese? Of course not, the point of Bo' Selecta is not accurate impressions but of twisting celebrities into grotesques of themselves. That said some of the voices are brilliant, especially Kelly Osbournes oscillating mid-Atlantic accent. Fun also is Avid's obsession with the D-list micro-celebrities that clutter the small screen (the Big Brother contestant being the most perfect example). If there is something wrong with this series is that it's a bit reliant on the scatological content to pad out moment's of surreal genius. Michael Jackson sky-diving dressed as Peter Pan while Martin Bashir ran about on the ground fretting about feeding his baby was a particular highlight.
