Cassetteboy’s Hilarious Channel 4 News Remix

"Football’s world governing body FIFA has recommended that the 2022 World Cup in Qatar should take place in 1969," says Channel 4 News presenter Cathy Newman matter-of-factly.
 
Burgundy-eseque levels of autocue gremlins? Sepp Blatter finally gone mad with power? Try the mischievous web wizard Cassetteboy, who has another budding viral hit on his hands with his latest mashup for The Guardian.
 
This time taking aim at Channel 4's flagship and normally po-faced news programme, his playful edit takes apart the coverage of recent headlines: the looming general election, xenophobic Chelsea fans, the Greek bailout, and yes, that FIFA scandal in which "football bosses were secretly filmed apparently taking cash from the 1960s". Brilliant stuff.
 
What we'd give to have this made into a fully fleshed out hour-long edit. Blink and you’ll miss it but Paul Mason's tongue-tied cameo is also a bit of a gem.
 
And to think you thought Jon Snow's quirky tie and luminous socks combinations were entertaining...
