The Bloody Apprentice


A friend pointed me to this the other day, and quite funny it is too - footage of the BBC's popular reality show The Apprentice, painstakingly edited so as to make a monkey out of Sugar and its contestants (though they often do a fair job of that themselves). Contains some strong language though, so don't watch if you're easily offended.

And while we're on the subject of The Apprentice - does anyone actually know what job it is that the winner gets? Organising the stationery at Amstrad HQ? Or perhaps researching new areas for Sugar's businesses to expand into - as in Harry Hill's gag about 'Amsstairs' ("No, we don't sell 'amsters, we sell Amsstairs")? Any suggestions welcome.

They get assigned a job once they win, usually managing some underwhelming project. The first one ended up managing part of amstrad's beauty division. I think the one before last got a job essentially clearing out a warehouse, the look on his face was priceless.

laughed so hard it took me a full 2 minutes to climb back on the sofa, can't believe how seamless that bit was
