Send to All

So, I've found a new fascination - English comedian Michael McIntyre's Big Show and the segment Send to All.   Michael McIntyre's Big Show is a BAFTA award-winning British variety and stand up comedy television series.  The show is a Saturday night entertainment series for BBC One over the holiday season.

Send to All involves Michael McIntyre taking a celebrity's phone and sending an awkward text message to all of his or her contacts.  At the end of the show, they then check the phone to see what replies come back.  It's a carry over from his chat show where he would do it with audience members.

And the texts are awkward.  It's the live and entertaining version of hitting reply all in an email chain.

Because this is a celebrity's phone, the responses then usually come from other celebrities.  The better ones are those that come from random one off's in the persons phone.  Or their family.

I mean, think about it, how many people are in your phone?  How many people you really know and how many people that you can't remember why the contact is in there?

Can you imagine what would happen if an embarrassing text went out to everyone in your phone?  Something like "Feeling a little insecure.  Do you still think I'm hot?  I mean Harry Styles, Bieber, and that guy who plays Polark...Can I still compete with these guys?" or "I had the weirdest dream last night.  I dreamt you were massaging my thighs and calling me 'Your highness.'"

I mean, it's the worst version of someone else having your phone.

And it's hilarious.

So, in case you would enjoy something like that -
