X Factor

He's been mentioned more than once here (most recently in January of this year), but Richard X really is value-for-money. His Black Melody site is always worth a look, and today it directed me to the below, which I'd never seen before.  It's hilarious, apparently the result of Kelis not being available for a TOTP appearance. Instead, viewers were treated to the Blackburn wunderkind rattling a cocktail shaker, and a load of rollerskaters.  The bit where he looks momentarily into the shaker, before pouring out the contents and then winking at the recipent, is improvisational comedy genius. And it bolsters Alexis Petridis' contention that "if Peter Kay scripted a show about a hip dance producer, you suspect that he would closely resemble Richard X."
