Kung Fu Gordon Brown

Kung fu fighting Gordon Brown in widescreen (and crummy upscaled HD)

Ha! Election time is almost upon us, which reminded me of something, namely those Gordon Brown mashups I did a couple of years ago, the ones Ian Anderson of The Designers Republic didn’t like too much. I seem to recall him saying something about the limited pool of footage… but anyway, at least these days there’s a home for them amongst the sea of stupidity and silliness that is YouTube.com.

In actual fact, I’ve been testing out a new version of the video editing software I’ve splashed out on. Whether it’ll be worth the 25 quid, who knows, but I thought I might as well get my money out of it. To this end, here’s an upscaled-to-HD version of the Kung Fu Gordon Brown video which, just a couple of years ago, we’d have never dreamed of seeing in high def. Have fun, and don’t take it too seriously, y’all.


I know nothing about art; as a rule, 'modern' graphic design does not appeal to me. I like to write in the first person because I do not want to be someone else.

Influences: public toilet cubicle drawings/slogans; WordArt posters in Market Street shop windows; Mega-Zine; bootleg vinyl artwork; Janne Suni; Pink Floyd; whoever is responsible for the Max Headroom hijacking incident; Collie, the Inept Reviewer.
