"Always Look on the Bright Side of Life?" Not a lot.
There was a time when it was simple to look on the brilliant aspect of life. Just not now. On Tuesday night time's (Oct. 2) The Late Late Show, host James Corden lamented that it's actually onerous to do comedy as of late, as a result of nothing feels humorous anymore. Which is why he's fortunate that Monty Python star Eric Idle completely randomly stopped by the studio to cheer him up with a rousing run by the comedy troupe's legendary ode to taking a optimistic outlook on the adverse, "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life," from 1979's Monty Python's Life of Brian.
Things began out good sufficient, with Idle singing the track's iconic, inescapably cheery refrain about not grumbling about your worries whereas standing underneath a large rainbow as two males in prime hats and tuxedos danced giddily behind him. Just then, although, Corden obtained a information alert on his telephone about how local weather change goes to make hurricanes means, means worse any further.
"Let's ignore that, that's dangerous information, we're right here for good cheer," Corden mentioned hurriedly, diving proper again into the refrain... solely to be interrupted by an alert on Idle's telephone concerning the newest Brexit mess. "The solely factor we want a reminder about proper now could be that life is gorgeous and great and filled with brightness," he mentioned. The alerts simply wouldn't cease coming, although.
So the lads flipped the script to re-title the track "We Are Probably All Going to Die," with Idle -- plugging his new memoir, Always Look on the Bright Side of Life: A Sortabiography -- singing, "The president is merciless and cussed as a mule/ I'm positive America's enemies are thrilled," whereas including dire warnings about rising oceans, the flame-out of Medicare and all the opposite issues that can most likely kill us. The solely hope, they warned, is that if everybody goes out to vote on Nov. 6 within the midterm elections in order that Democrats can re-take Congress, particularly younger folks. "They received't, we're screwed," the lads lamented.
Joined by a dance troupe spinning yellow umbrellas in addition to Elvis and Vincent Van Gogh impersonators, the pair introduced all of it residence with the monumental couplet: "So have a drink or 10, you received't remorse it when/ The reaper comes a knockin' at our door/ Why even clear your sheets, when certainly one of Trump's dumb tweets/ Could get us all embroiled in nuclear struggle."
