I think I can explain the appeal...
9 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've just gotten around to seeing this one for the first time recently and I think I can draw a bead on why people dig it. Much like The Hitcher segments, much of Chris Morris' work, and even the Gervais/Merchant Office, the humor is all based in discomfort and anxiety. We've seen happy-go-lucky Vince so much, and knowing Noel Fielding also plays this appalling, intense, cringe-inducing abomination spouting beyond-bizarre dialogue is really disquieting. So much so that the only response one can find is to laugh or writhe in tension. Not to mention that the things Old Gregg says are written like much of the rest of Boosh, but are delivered with the unpredictability and vocabulary of a crazed bum. It's a completely surreal situation, yet painfully understandable and frightening when accepted on its own terms. Old Gregg has no supernatural powers, no deus ex machina resolution, nothing but weird vibe and genetic mutation. In the face of fear, one can laugh or be crippled, and Old Gregg is frightening enough to haunt the wet cave of memory, drinking Bailey's out of a shoe, incessantly reminding us who he is and that he still is. He's Old Greeeegggg...
