'Youth Hostelling with Chris Eubank', now a thing

20 August 2015

You remember the Alan Partridge sketch, when the tragically funny TV host pitched some ideas to an executive, including the infamous 'Monkey Tennis' and 'Inner City Sumo'?

Well, 'Youth Hostelling with Chris Eubank', was one of the more famous suggestions and now, oddly, it has become something of a reality.

Eubank said he'd previously no idea why everyone kept mentioning youth hostels to him, but now, he's in on the joke and the video above was made.

Sadly, this isn't a television show, but rather, a commercial for booking site Hostelworld.

That doesn't make this stunt rubbish though. The show itself would invariably be no cop at all, and in this short form, we get to enjoy it, and the fact that some PR person for a hostel company managed to convince someone to spend a load of money on a line from an Alan Partridge joke.

We're still waiting on 'Arm Wrestling With Chas & Dave', Channel Five.
