The Wire with a laugh track
Kenny G, the adult contemporary saxophonist, turns 53 today, and anything that man hasn’t done probably isn’t worth doing. He’s strolled down sandy beaches at sunset, his yellow vest flapping in the wind, just him and his sax. He’s run women hot baths sprinkled with rose petals, and serenaded them with one of his smooth sax hits. He’s even allowed Glenn Hoddle moments of nervous reflection in times when he might have just made a big mistake by insulting our disabled brothers and sisters. His sax music has helped a lot of people. Hence we thought we’d get him a gift, so we all stood at the top of big buildings, our silhouettes playing sax in the centre of a bright full moon, shouting ideas to one another. It boiled down to a toss up between a big orange jumper, or a brilliant clip of The Wire overdubbed with canned laughter. In the end we got him both. Happy Birthday Mr G!
