'A Jest, Surely'
16 January 2024 60s
The joke's on me.
by Andrew MacGregor

A court jester has a, erm, mid-laugh crisis in this ABC iView commercial. As Queen Catherine is briefed on enemy positions, the poor fool says he doesn’t feel like jesting today. Why? Because roommate Sanjay has cancelled his subscription to the streaming service squirrel. What that looks like is left to the imagination.

The jester goes on to say that ABC iView is a cost-free, ad-free replacement, but Queen Catherine is not amused. "You are the worst jester in the world!" she moans, and—no longer sure of his place in the world of stand-up comedy— agrees. He's good value to the end though, as the bells on his hat ring a tragicomic tune.
