Harry Hill In New David Bowie Song Spoof

Subscribe to Harry Hill alerts

When David Bowie's new single was released earlier on in the week, he would have been expecting refined commentators of the music scene to gush frantically, not Harry Hill's head to appear in place of Jacqueline Humphries.

You see, in the video, the very strange video, Bowie's head is next to Humphries', who is the wife of the 'Where Are We Now?' video's director Tony Oursler. But in this ridiculous spoof version, believed to have been made by writer Michael Moran, Harry Hill's face replaces hers, while the comedian pulls funny faces throughout the short promo clip. Meanwhile, speaking about the possibility of live shows, David Bowie's guitarist Earl Slick said: "We don't know. Obviously, we want him to. But right now, that's a big if... I could get a phone call tomorrow saying, 'Hey, you know what? Here's the setlist.' I don't know. I can't speak for him or the organisation. Obviously, the band would love to go out. Even if it's not a huge tour, we would like to go out and do some gigs. But that's yet to be seen."

Slick added that he recorded his parts on Bowie's forthcoming new album last summer. "David got in touch with me out of the blue, and he said, 'I'm ready to go back in. What are you doing? Are you around? Are you touring?' I said, 'No, just get me some dates.' We started banging dates around - and he was already recording - and I went in and did all my stuff in July."
