'Gap Yah' sketch wins online prize
Monday 13 December 2010
A satirical sketch poking fun at posh "gap yah" students has been named one of the online hits of the year.
The three-minute, 18-second film made by comedy group The Unexpected Items has been watched on video-sharing website YouTube more than 2.6 million times this year.
Gap Yah, right, shows Orlando calling his friend Tarquin to tell him about his trip around the developing world on "a spiritual, cultural, political exchange thing".
The video was named Homegrown Comedy Hit of the Year by YouTube.
Justin Bieber's track "Baby" was the most-viewed video in the UK, followed by Eminem's "Love the Way You Lie".
