You may remember the first documentary about the making of the popular "(This Is The Way To) Amarillo" Comic Relief music video, well this follow-up came a few months later. This is more about the impact comedian Peter Kay made in the music charts, whether it be featuring in and directing a music video, or creating more memorable comic singles. It starts with the reminiscing about Kay making and starring in the video for the Texas single "Sleep", with the references to 80's movies, like Ghost, An Officer and a Gentleman and the Lionel Richie "Hello" music video. Then we see the making of Kay's number one single, the remake of The Proclaimers' "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)", starring Brian Potter (Kay), Andy Pipkin (Matt Lucas) and The Proclaimers' themselves, which went to number one. Finally, the introduction of Kay's satirical comedy show Britain's Got the Pop Factor... and Possibly a New Celebrity Jesus Christ Soapstar Superstar Strictly on Ice, which introduced both his character Geraldine McQueen, and her number two single written by him and Gary Barlow, "The Winners Song". Narrated by Liza Tarbuck, with contributions by Richard Curtis, The Proclaimers' Charlie and Craig Reid, Texas's Sharleen Spiteri and Pete Waterman. Peter Kay was number 12 on TV's 50 Greatest Stars, he was number 2 on 100 Greatest Stand-Ups, and he was number 1 on The 100 Greatest Funny Moments. Very good!
