When I uploaded the previous Vlog to youtube I searched “Oscar & Rosie’s” from a different account to see how easy we are to find and was presented with a list of all the video content on the platform that bears our name. I’d never done this before and was surprised at some of the results.
So here for your viewing pleasure are the top 5 videos on Youtube about Oscar & Rosie’s.
This is kind of where it all started. We’d finished our run at the Picnic Basket and I was trying to raise money for the move to Das Kino. Crowdfunding was brand new and seemed very us, but the idea of making a video to promote the campaign (in which it was apparently important that I featured…ugh!) filled me with dread. Until I realised that we could hang the while thing on a comedy song. Sing along…
4. How We Make A Pizza - by Aqibul Ali
A really talented filmmaker who made this excellent spoof film for shits and giggles whilst an intern at GoDine (forgive me if i’ve mis-remembered that). Always thought it was a bit of a shame about the sound, and the fact that I’ve got a monster sweat patch going on under my right arm, but a great vid nonetheless. When this was released I got calls from several friends who were concerned that the were really my glasses (they were actually part of a Junior Soprano costume I’d been working on.)
3. Gloaty Sock Restaurant Reviews
I genuinely have no idea who this person is but his offbeat restaurant reviews are hilarious and should definitely be more widely enjoyed than they seem to be. There are a couple on Youtube but this is the most recent one.
2. Toilet Review by El Shires Man
This video is pretty much the reason I did this blog post. It’s not a review of the facilities as a whole (which would still be pretty niche but some quite a lot of people feel strongly about bathrooms) but more of a technical rundown of the actual toilet itself; the model, its flush operation etc. I especially like the comment that has been left below it, suggesting that rather than being a lone wolf, this man is part of an underground community of toilet enthusiasts whom the internet has galvanised into something of a movement (pun intended). At the time of writing this is the second most viewed Oscar & Rosie’s based video on the internet. What a time to be alive.
1. Best Pizza in Notts by Gorge Us
The most viewed O&R based vid on Youtube is this slickly produced review by those nice boys at Gorge Us. Great looking film, Riccardo spinning dough, excellent audio and editing, marred only by an extended appearance by me.
