Who Knew Celebrities Swearing Would Be So Cool?
neuro comment 79 Comments

Channel Four have slipped out a Flash movie advert which … well, it’s basically people who are on, or have been on programmes on Channel Four, such as The West Wing, ER, Big Brother, yadda yadda … and they’re swearing. A lot. I’ve no idea where it came from, but it’s certainly starting to gather moss. Watch it below.

Sarah Chalke‘s sultry “merde” is verrry nice, but the cracker has to be Janel Maloney saying “I like c**t”. Sigh.

  5. OMG! my brother just showed me this clip its actually the funniest thing I’ve ever seen and can i just state that adam brody (number 30) is absoultey gourgeous! Any hoo thank you channel 4! and am i being a spac but where is the link for the virginty thing ont the devil duck website cus i couldnt see it. cheers if you know.

  6. SJC the one with the dark hair is rachel bilson (who i apparetly look like…i wish) n the one with the blonde who says “i like the word fuck way too much” is mischa barton, both from the OC.
    If anyone gets hold of the HTML code for this let me know ive wanted it for agesss!

  7. Those Channel 4 films are awesome, especially this one! And Derren Brown- sooooooooo hot!

  8. Oh, this is only the most brilliant video ever. I just wish we could download it, because that link posted two years ago to the cache’d one doesn’t quite work anymore.

  9. Has anyone any idea where the other ads from this series are, the only other one I found is "Age you lost your virginity"

  10. Bradley Whitford is so cute when he swears.

    …well, he’s cute all the time, but you know..

  11. Ah, I see I am a rather late discoverer! Nevermind, it still rocks my socks.

    Any chance you could reactivate the link for the clip? I’ve been lookin’ all over, trying to download it, but I just can’t find anything, except your link, which doesn’t work. D’oh!

  12. has anyone got any way of me being able to download a copy of this? the link above doesn’t seem to be working for me– thanks

  13. I liked when they asked the celebrities what was their 1st record they bought.

    Does anyone know what Marcia Cross' was (Bree from Desperate Housewives)?

    I'd LOVE to know. Thank-you.

  15. the second last one – zach braff – is awesome.. he’s acting just like on scrubs 😀 and all the oc stars rachel bilson, adam brody, peter gallagher and mischa barton were awwesome too 😛 never heard them swear.. and the show KICKED ASS!!!!! lol

  16. How sad the open howl of an audience branded by televisual lobotomy.
    How sad the hankering pangs of the porn hungry.
    How bad the voyeurs decent to celebricity.
    How strong the arguments brought about by the ultra-intelligent loafers in defense of the truly stupid content of 89% of broadcasting.
    How deluded the internet swingset.
    Carry on.
    best wishes…

  17. I think the fourth one is Danny Pino (Cold Case). Or… maybe I was counting wrong. But he’s in there, it looks like!
