Now, however, Brian Sewell has gone with the flow. He's entered the area of celebrity self-parody, appearing nude on his book-jacket and doing comic voice-overs.
Wall's Feast is a high-concept commercial, rather like one of those films dreamt up by a Hollywood agent (Schwarzenegger and De Vito as twins!), only at a somewhat more modest level. The concept here is: Brian Sewell and Terry Christian! Young, dumb Northern cred itself counterpoints the exquisite end of European civilisation!
The stars are in voice-over only, and the visual is short and cheaply made in the Monty Python/early Terry Gilliam animation manner. So we have a pastiche version of a classical feast painting, with Sir Brian warbling on about "a feast of larks' tongues and swans' brains" and our Terry responding in character that a Feast is an ice-cream with knobby bits on the outside and squishy and chunky elements elsewhere. At this point the Victorian instructive pointing finger appears on screen to indicate the virtues of a sort of chocolate-covered woodchip lolly, and there's some slow progress at the Feast table with a certain amount of eye-rolling, falling over, sicking- up and gobbling sounds.
The Terry voice calls the Brian voice "your imperial verbosity", the animated hand clears the animated table and the product positioning statement appears on screen: "A veritable banquet." More like a quick fumble, however.Reuse content
