Craig Charles doing a corporate video. Doesn’t sound the most fascinating thing in the world, does it? Except:
“I’m doing a corporate video for Nintendo,” he explains. “When the kids get their Nintendo console for Christmas there’ll be a video with it which tells them all the news and views and stuff about the games, and I’m hosting that.” The video certainly seems to have a Red Dwarf type flavour. “Well, you put me into a spaceship and everyone’s going to assume Red Dwarf, but we’re not using the set for an advert. There’s a big Nintendo launch party, for a new range, and I’m one of the people watching the party, from the Red Dwarf set.
“I find it really strange, doing a corporate video in the BBC, but we got Mel (Bibby) in to do the set, and John Pomphrey did the lighting, and it was good fun, it was like a reunion, like coming home again.
A Dwarf-like set, with Pomph and Bibby involved? I’d love to see it. But how the fuck you’d actually get hold of a copy, I don’t know…
