The Bloody Apprentice

Let’s try that again shall we…

I’ve laid on a very nice treat for you, it’s this video of The Apprentice.

A quick word of warning first – it’s a little bit smutty, so if you watch it at work, one of you will get fired.

I’ve been working on this video for a couple of months, on and off.Β  I watched 45 episodes of The Apprentice (most of them several times), and material from 43 of them made it into the final piece.Β  Basically, it was a lot of work.

Oh, one more thing. If you’ve never heard our stuff before, you might like to check out some of our earlier, audio-only pieces on youtube. I particularly recommend the David Attenborough and Jamie Oliver ones.

UPDATE: You asked for t-shirts (well, probably not you specifically, but a few people did). So, in a blatant attempt to cash in on a short-lived internet fad, here they are:

  123. Awesome stuff!

    I hope the first thing you did was to index all the words in at least the boardroom, either using speech recognition or manually….

    Then of course you could search for words you wanted and where they occurred, and splice the bits as you needed them.

    Or did it truly take months and months of OCD manual work? Ahhh art!

  124. Utterly brilliant

  125. genius as always. I just bought your book, hope that helps a bit.

  126. Sir, this is excellent excellent work. Thank you, it has cheered me up no end today.

    I suspect I will never be able to hear the theme music again without singing along

    bloody, bloody blooody bloody……….

  127. brilliant!

    Good stuff guys and really well done

  132. Love it. Great work. Kept me very happy today!

  133. Hats off to you. Incredible. Brilliant.

  134. That was truly an outstanding piece of comedy there, brilliant work – haven’t laughed so hard in ages, I’ll be sure to tell everyone about you! thanks a lot for the effort put in into making it! πŸ™‚

  135. Absolutely amazing. Nearly pissed my pants! You deserve a donation!

  140. Awesome, absolutely brilliant, great job.

  141. This is such an amazing mashup of Apprentice clips. Chris Moyles really needs to see this and get it on his show after all the mashups they do with The Apprentice. Great work!

  142. That was amazing. One day I hope to have lost as much money as siralan

  143. Best thing I have seen in along time, if only the BBC actually produced something this good…

  144. Great work. Keep it up.

  145. Apprentice = shit, this = shitter.

    spot on – I hate the man, sorry you had to watch so much. Excellent job, needed doing, big time.

  207. This is an adolescent, puerile, schoolboy attempt at humour. Did you do this all by yourself?
    I suppose watching the Apprentice may be partly to blame.
    I cringed and shook my head in disbelief throughout the appallingly unfunny video. I gather it was taken down from Youtube; bum bloody fart. That’s not funny either.

  208. haha
    thats amazing !!!
    must have taken ages to do !!
