The legendary video mashups from Cassetteboy have had over 26 million views! Be it Lord Sugar, Downton Abbey or Harry Potter, no one is safe from their editing talent.
Cassetteboy are a cut ‘n’ paste duo from Chelmsford, Essex. They re-edit footage of TV shows to make celebrities talk about sex and drugs, and are somehow trying to make a career of it. They released five albums in the early 2000s, including The Parker Tapes, which received a mark of 8.7 on Pitchfork, if that’s important. They have toured extensively, playing in the USA, Canada, Greece, Poland and Colchester. They also perform at Glastonbury every year. 2012 was a bit rubbish because the festival wasn’t on, so their act just confused a bunch of cows.
Cassetteboy are best known for their YouTube videos. Their smash hit The Bloody Apprentice, in which Alan Sugar talks about sh*tting frying pans, has been watched five and a half million times. They have also tackled David Cameron, Downton Abbey, Harry Potter, and The Only Way is Essex. A recent video in which Prince Andrew described the Queen’s org*sms was banned by the BBC. Cassetteboy have over 123,000 YouTube subscribers and 26,000,000 total video views.
Their work has been featured on Radio One and regularly appears on Rude Tube. They enjoy long walks in the country and have kind eyes.
Cassetteboy are famous for lying about themselves and recently sailed round the world with Clare Balding. 2013 saw the launch of ‘Cassetteboy vs DJ Rubbish’ off the back of their hugely successful Edinburgh Fringe show.
