Sweet Oblivion

Watch this sketch first (don’t read on until you’ve done so)….LINK

A perfect sketch. Beautifully shot, a brilliant lesson in misdirection, and Kevin Eldon just takes my breath away. Even the music, which I first thought was too leading, tees the laugh up expertly, so that when it drops you immediately fill the silence with laughter. It also illustrates a principle I have long held to be true. If you take a horrible situation, and turn it so that it becomes delightful, it’s often more satisfying than vice versa.
