We insist you stop whatever you're doing right now, and watch the Chuckle Brothers trying to be cool with Tinchy Stryder
If you’ve been wondering what The Chuckle Brothers – Barry and Paul (and their ladder) – have been up to since the 90s, we have the answer.
They’ve been playing table tennis with Tinchy Stryder.
In this AMAZING VIDEO (seriously, we don’t want to oversell this to you, but it is probably the best thing to ever happen in the history of things happening), our favourite slapstick brothers join forces with rapper Tinchy to sing a wonderful, wonderful, slightly confusing little song.
It seems to be mainly filmed in the street by our mum’s house (or similar) and features Barry and Paul (and their moustaches! They still have their moustaches!) singing about wanting to sing a song with Tinchy. It’s so meta, you guys. They also play table tennis and say ‘oh dear’ over and over. You’ll see.
The best part though – of course – is seeing our childhood heroes do their classic to-me-to-you joke (a lot) and watch Tinchy try to cope with it.
Is it just us, or do the brothers look exactly the same as they did 20 years ago? Barry, now 69 (hasn’t he been 69 forever?) and Paul, 67 (hasn’t he been 67 forever?) were stars of the amazing ChuckleVision, which started in 1987 and made us beg our dad to grow a ‘tache (he did and he looked sooo funny).
We checked (Wikipedia, obvs), and the lads have pretty much continued to do children’s telly ever since we abandoned them for more grown up shows like Clarissa Explains All and The Secret World of Alex Mack, as well as quite a bit of panto. They also won Celebrity Coach Trip in 2010, because of course.
The brothers apparently met Tinchy, 28, while they were filming Keith Lemon‘s Celebrity Juice, and came up with the idea to raise money and awareness for bone marrow charity ACLT. So not only is this video brilliant and funny, it’s also all in the name of a great cause.
Chuckle Brothers for number one! Oh dear. Oh dear, oh dear.
