If you’re tired of being that biker who’s constantly trying to warn people to get out of the way with your bike bell, there’s now a cheap and easy solution. Reverting back to the olden days of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, your bike can now sound like a galloping horse through the streets.
While not completely fraudulent since he added his own twist, SheepGoesMeep uncovered where K-Pop star Psy might have seen the original horse-riding move that became so iconic in his video “Gangnam Style.” Turns out, the move was right under our noses the whole time, used in the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail. That movie came out back in 1975, which means we’ve been going a whole 37 years without paying any attention to its irresistible charm. And if we really want to be technical it dates back to the late fifth and early sixth centuries when King Arthur was around, riding low budget invisible horses.
John Cleese is writing his memoirs to fund a nasty divorce settlement, reports CTV.
The ‘Monty Python’ actor and comedian is writing a book in order to help fund his £12.2 million divorce settlement from third wife Alyce Faye Eichelberger.
The book, to be titled ‘The Maintenance Memoirs,’ will be written by John with an official biographer, with them each taking it in turns to write a page. The book is thought to be able to command an advance of around £2 million from potential publishers.
Cleese told ‘The Sun’ newspaper: “I don’t think anybody’s ever done one like this. I’d been putting it off – partly because I was too busy, and also because it was too difficult trying to remember things.”
The 71-year-old star has previously said he needs to earn about £1 million a year to pay off the settlement and he is currently on a comedy tour of the U.K., dubbed ‘The Alimony Tour,’ which finishes on July 2.
That has to suck. Working just to pay off a divorce? Cleese must be worth a hell of a lot or must have done something really bad, because the ex-wife seems to be getting a lot of money out of this.
Hopefully the book makes all that money and more, so he actually gets something out of writing it.
