Diversity in the UK, late-70s style…

Diversity in the UK, late-70s style…

Thanks to @bloggerheads and b3ta for pointing me to this amazing late-70s UK video, celebrating the diversity of London by … having the great Derek Griffiths impersonate a Chinese man by pulling on his eyebrows and singing about Chinkies, with a popular UK song from 1969 celebrating the ‘melting’ pot’ of the UK.

Derek Griffiths, btw, was the amiable black host of many a childrens’ TV show back in the 1970s and early 80s. I feel like my childhood has just been urinated on. But I can’t stop watching it…

  • Wow, very funny. All we need for the remake video is a thousand-sari-strong Bollywood dance line behind them and Ali G doing a Paki rap in the middle.
