We moved in together recently so had to make the unavoidable trip to IKEA; I figured out how to get through there as quickly as possible. Yeah, yeah I know, vertical video and all that. I filmed it in Snapchat, you'll survive. 7 million views update: Thanks for all the support everyone, it's been a crazy ride. Just to answer a few things that got asked a lot... Her name is "Dana"; we are Australians; I didn't make a cent from this video because ads are lame; of course I saw Cian Twomey's "Emily" video before I did mine; IKEA Australia offered to give us a new lounge since I didn't want to get one when we were there last and Dana did... so everything worked out better than expected! Oh yeah and cheers to @racheljoy for bugging me for weeks to upload this video. If it wasn't for her it would have died on snapchat's my story as I thought it was just a silly couple of minutes no one else would really care about, apparently she's got an eye for internet quality!

I grew up listening to Rodney Rude and had most of his albums. I later became a fan of Ricky Gervais. Was rewatching Animals the other day and something twigged so I asked my brother, also a Rude and Gervais fan, and he immediately found me the recording of Rude Rides Again. I chucked them together to see what others think. Pulling the wings off a fly while you are in a bath in order to get off is some pretty specific parallel thinking! Rodney Rude is an Australian comedian born in 1943 that has released 12 albums and 5 specials. He was once arrested after a show as he offended police. After taking the charges to a full bench of the Supreme Court of Australia, he won. The officer leading the case was later jailed for corruption. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2UnhAfHE3M Ricky Gervais is, well, Ricky Gervais. Sources: Rodney Rude - Rude Rides Again (1986) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=517nJYmny5g Ricky Gervais - Animals (2003) Bit is at the 40 minute mark. Additional footage is from Rude's McDonalds bit from More Grunt (1998): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U705EAx70Cw I obviously don't have any rights to any of this footage, just using it for research purposes.

Havana was a hole but interesting. The resort we stayed at in Varadero was like Australia's Bali but for Canadians and Venezuelans. Matanzas had the best reef and people. Flew in and out of Cancun. Went to Havana, Varadero and Matanzas. Stayed mainly in casas particulares (their Airbnb) and got around in dodgy taxis and buses. Recommend you take a debit card from a Euro bank like ING to access your cash. Expect to have no internet while you are there. Everyone will try and sell you cigars and taxi rides; negotiate hard.

Take note that all the movie titles in this ad are LITERAL translations from image to title. There are no obscurities that COULD be. It's either obvious or it's incorrect. I don't have all the movies yet, but I know I don't have any wrong ones (probably). Please suggest more in the comments and I will add them in. Make sure you include a reason with your movie title suggestion!
