Theme Song

G4S Have an 80s Style Theme Song…and this is it!

I wasn’t going to bother posting anything Olympic themed this weekend (there’s enough of it already) but then I stumbled upon this.

Yep, bungling Olympic security firm G4S have a theme song, it sounds like the theme tune to an 80s cartoon and what’s more, it appears to be genuine. I’m sorry to say that you will probably be humming this all day.

Thanks Internet!

The Governator Alternative Theme Song

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GOe9vT-2qeA&w=480&h=390]

Some of you are probably aware already of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s new cartoon series ‘The Governator’. Terrifyingly the show itself is actually real however comedy film makers Jon & Al Kaplan (Conan the Barbarian: The Musical, Silence! the Musical) weren’t too happy with the quality of the show’s theme song and elected to produce their own.

Thanks again to Ryan from Cold Callers for this one. He’s been carpet bombing me with funny stuff all week.

Fallen Heroes update and Moon news tomorrow.

C.O.B.R.A. Theme Song

Afternoon all,

You may have realised by now that all the great things that happen here at the Bunker do not happen as a result of Steve and I alone. We have a whole network of amazing people who help make all of this possible. One such friend of the Bunker is mr Lee Ravitz, a professional actor and mad-genius.

This backdrop actually follows him around. You get used to it after a while.

Lee often drops little bits of glorious silliness into my inbox but this time around I just couldn’t resist sharing it. C.O.B.R.A is by far my favorite silly-name-for-a-real-government-organisation and it’s high time that it was given it’s own theme song. You can find out more about one of Lee’s big projects by heading over to the PULP website (something we’ll be doing a feature on at some point, I’m sure) but for now, over to the man himself.

Hi gents,

I was away over the weekend filming, so I was surprised by the news given on Yahoo that a cobra was in talks to decide the next move on Libya. But this was, in fact, not a super sleek assassin snake that had been specially reared by David Cameron to take out Gaddaffi – it is, in fact, merely a very spurious acronym for a Whitehall association that the PM would like everyone to think is cool. And, in honour of that, I have unearthed the theme tune to the animated action series that would accompany the actions of COBRA.

THEME SONG

COBRA!
Cabinet Office Briefing Room A!
COBRA!
Chaired by the PM, and men in grey
Ensuring that the fate of the Libyan nation
Is defended by the Local Gov’ment Association
COBRA!
It’s not the White House Situation Room
COBRA!
To ranting dictators it spells doom!
And that’s spelt…
C-O-B-R-A-
COBRA!
(except on less exalted occasions, when it is generally relegated to being spelt COBR, and doesn’t sound like a deadly snake).

Apparently it's Nick Clegg under the mask.
