Big Dave’s Big Time
An excellent post from Michael over at Dolphin Hotel on CallMeDave’s hip new plans to try and cash in on wannabe Britain. The Big Ambition of Dave and his new homie Gary Barlow in the launch of School Stars is to create something like x-factor on sorbitol, except his description sounds suspiciously like the plot of Alan Parker film Fame:
With School Stars we’re going to see kids practising together in the corridors, forming bands, getting together in lunch-breaks to sing and dance.
And no doubt staging impromptu song and dance routines in improbable places.
Cameron’s Big Fame vision is no doubt more like a squeaky clean Glee or High School Musical, avoiding anything distasteful like the sex, poverty and homosexuality of the original movie.
Even Tony Blair’s Cool Britannia brand wasn’t this lame.
