PET SHOP BOYS : I’m With Stupid
Okay, we know that in the scheme of things that we’re not really looking back THAT far with this clip, but it IS quintessential Pet Shop Boys. And given that they’ve penned Girls Aloud’s rumoured next single, have a new album due in March next year and are without question one of the greatest pOp acts ever to have graced the planet, we thought it wise to pay tribute. Here, Neil and Chris rope in the services of Little Britain stars David Walliams and Matt Lucas, who basically take the piss out of the duo, but at the same time, provide a clever visual history of the Pet Shop Boys’ iconography. From Chris’s trademark ‘Boy’ cap, the duo’s orange jumpsuits and conical hats, to tandem bicycles, globe-printed head domes and ‘Go West’ inspired staircase, it’s a wonderful (if not slightly creepy) homage to the world’s finest pOp duo. Don’t know about you, but we’re busting at the seams in anticipation of the boys’ new Xenomania co-created material.
