At Christmas time thoughts inevitably turn to those less fortunate than ourselves and it’s hard not to think of all those innocent people who two years ago sat through every installment of the now legendary — and illegal in many countries – Popjustice Calvin Harris Christmas Countdown.
It had seemed such an innocent proposition when, at the end of November 2007, we asked Calvin to deliver us a series of 24 jokes in daily, advebt calendaresque bursts of video.
Calvin rose admirably to the challenge and produced a series of clips which we can now see clearly went on to inspire this year’s ‘Jam TV’ so the Christmas Countdown is not without context, nor cultural significance.
Here’s the December 24 entry, which we hope brings back some memories — Calvin’s old haircut, the old
Popjustice logo… Even the subject of the joke screams ‘2007’.
It ended on a bit of a low point, didn’t it.
