It's fuckin Panty Smile that gets lodged in my head. Whenever I listen to Nirvana I remember Panty Smile and whatever Nirvana song is stuck in my head from listening to it will keep morphing into Panty Smile

In case anyone's not familiar with late-night no-budget programming of the early 90s, Sorted is a parody of Get Stuffed!, a reprehensibly studenty cooking programme. Each episode was about 4 minutes long (but seemed longer).

A montage of typical Get Stuffed! content

One tentative rung down that youtube rabbit hole threw up this advert from 1990, try and guess what it's for and remember that the legal high "spice" hadn't been invented yet - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tSPv2lhSHEk&t=1m35s

Pepe Jeans were on a "promote via confusing the viewers" kick at the turn of the nineties. They had put out this ad the previous year:

The main riff from "52 Girls" by the B-52s is in there as well. Classic.

Since this thread was posted, anybody using the word sorted has prompted a reprise of SAWTED in my head. I have sometimes proceeded to say it loud, before remembering that it isn't actually a major pop-cultural touchstone.
