I Have a Good Feeling About This

Posted by gauloises1 on May 10, 2010

Many thanks to Sarah/Atiras for sending me the link to Ferru’s recent appearance on a Spanish TV show which I just happily spent half an hour watching despite not understanding a word of what was said.

If you’ve ever wanted to see Ferru interviewed/have a serious conversation with a puppet/smash a racquet/attack a can of yoghurt/play some sort of scrambling game on a giant banana phone/attempt to hit a ping-pong ball that’s been propelled out of a water bottle/ wear a lab coat and latex gloves, then this is the show for you. It’s certainly the show for me. In fact, it might be my new favourite show.

(Ferru’s segment starts about 9 minutes in.)

    Very loose translation of a few fun parts:

    The host told Ferru he’s leading the tour in broken rackets, along with some Russian, Safin. Ferru told him shows what you know about tennis, Safin’s retired (earlier Ferru claimed that he’s never broken a racket).

    Skipping ahead a bit…the hose asks Ferru if he’s ever reached the level of Youzhny (when he hits his head with the racket) and Ferru says, no, that’s too much.

    The name of the show is the Anthill, so the puppets are the “ants,” I guess. The one ant makes fun of Ferru’s Acapulco trophy, telling him it looks like a trophy you would give a porn actress.

    That was riveting. And by that I mean Ferru’s hair.

    Would it be totally sad if I were to admit that these puppets are cooler than most people I know?
    This show is pure win. The perfect thing to watch while enjoying one too many nightcaps. As I have.

    As for Daveed… Oh he will do just fine as a Delpo stand-in for the time being. Just fine.

    I’m glad the show was such a hit. I could not stop laughing at the totally random awesomeness when I saw it. Ferru’s laughter only made me laugh harder.

    Awesome. In every way.
