Hold me closer Tony Danza?

Excuse me while I kiss this guy?

Feeling, like a ham and mustard shake?

I thought so at first but was able, with a little time, to “hear” each of the phrases quite clearly but only one at a time. It was eerie how I could sense the switch happen.

Yes! I watched it again and took turns looking at each text block and had the same sensation. One of them threw me off because of the British pronunciation, but that one came through, too. Pretty cool.

I find it’s much funnier to pretend these phrases are all the lyrics to a lovely little song they all know and love:

Bart Simpson bouncing
Lobsters in motion,
Lactates in Pharmacy,
That is embarrassing

That isn’t my receipt,
I’m chasing Martian –
Rotating pirate ship,
That isn’t mercy.

Seriously, though, what are they actually saying

“That is embarrassing”

The chanting crowd is saying the words “that is embarrassing.” The phrase is a football chant from Derby County F.C. in Derbyshire, England.
