Remember those videos featuring an, erm, blacked-up Rob and Doug last year, to promote all the various new Dwarfy stuff? It occurs to me that we never posted a definitive list of them. So here we go – if I’ve missed any scattered around the web anywhere, let me know and I’ll add them:
- The Bodysnatcher Collection Mini-site
- The Bodysnatcher Collection: Play.com
- The Bodysnatcher Collection: Amazon
- Just The Smegs Mini-site
- Just The Smegs: Amazon
- Red Dwarf Mobile
It was great fun watching them again, actually, and their pathetic attempts at hard sell are extremely amusing. The Just The Smegs mini-site one even brings up one genuinely new bit of information (well, to me, anyway) – Cat’s “You don’t have to tell me twice!” stuff in Emohawk is based on Danny’s inability to remember lines, exactly like Robert’s “Don’t tell me – I’ve got it, I’ve got it…” lines the previous series. It’s so obvious once you know!
I’m not quite sure these vids got enough recognition at the time, actually. Last year was so full of great things in Dwarf-land, that Rob and Doug reunited in front of the camera almost got lost in amongst everything else. But just think: a year and a half ago, it’s not something any of us thought we would see again.
Indeed, it almost makes me wish that Rob and Doug were shot together for the The Beginning and It’s Cold Outside doccos on Bodysnatcher. But then, I guess that wouldn’t have fitted in with the format of the doccos established over the previous six installments…
