Total cargo cult at this point.

And yeah ive never seen a bar put their own "comedy" name on a beer. Presumably when you buy from the brewer you have an obligation to put the proper brand name on the pump?

You can take a selfie in half a Robin Reliant, not Regal.

Not even a whole car.

Love how, at the start of that video, that passing couple seems to physically recoil as they pass - 'eurgh - set foot in that tacky shithole? No thanks!'

Deso.

Not even a first-generation Robin, which at least followed straight on from the Regal. The version of the Robin they have followed the Rialto. So not even whole half-arsery. Just "fuck-it, this'll do" writ large. Which, ironically, does fit the theme.

Tia Maria and Lucozade is canon, at least - but I don't believe it had a name, or any other ingredients.

It's up there on a list of drinks I really want to try, but would ever order in a pub, along with Guinness shandy.

Presumably they'll be opening a Bread-themed bar in Peckham now?

peteprodge

I visited Poland last month, and they are very very much into their pizza. It's very prolific, sold in so many places, even in kiosks.

I took this photo of a literal pizza hut* in Malbork, not because of the curious way to flog 'glorified cheese-on-toast' (as my mother called it), but it's that use of the Mistral font. It looks like a cheap tacky Only Fools & Horses dining experience an Only Fools & Horses dining experience, but in Polish.



* = Alright, it wasn't a hut made out of pizza, I concede.

That's actually fucking incredible.

On the subject of the yellow van... (not in the bar, but in the actual show). OK, everyone is used to it being part of the show. But take a step back... would someone like Del actually have a van like that in a million years? Why would he do that? Surely he'd have a more conventional car (a sports car or luxury car, if he could afford it, or a staightforward white transit for business).

But he definitely, definitely, wouldn't have a fluffy cabin. I mean... why? Except for out-of-character cheap laughs? "That's a funny vehicle, let's have it in the show. We'll just say that Del has one. Then we can have a funny vehicle in the show". It's total bollocks, isn't it?

Aren't you getting your Trotter vehicles confused there? It's Del's later "Pratmobile" Ford Capri that has the fluffy interior, unless I'm very much mistaken.

grainger

Ah OK - I'm just going on the video from that bar TBH, where the yellow van has a fluffy interior. I should stop getting Fools wrong.

But to be fair to myself, no reasonable person could expect that bar to offer anything less than a fully autentic experience.

Ferris

Was gonna criticize you there but yeah fair point. This is on the Only Fools Bar, where is the apology? It's outrageous.

I presume it is because people would be more likely to notice it, making it better advertising for Del and his company. Either that or the three wheeled van would have been cheaper to buy.

New gritty reboot of only fools where they just have a normal white ford transit van.

Fambo Number Mive

It's just called "Fools" and is a drama based on the sitcom. Del hides heroin in the blow up sex dolls before selling it to children. Rodney gets kettled by police on a XR demo.

grainger

I mean, that's almost what they do anyway, isn't it? Sell dangerous bootleg prodcts? I wonder what the death count is. The excess deaths in Peckham, vs. other comparable areas, must be astronomical.

Flashbacks to everything their mum said on her deathbed.

the whole series is revealed to be Del's flashback during his fatal fall through the bar

Ferris

"Trig, it's not your fault. Nobody could have known he'd fall through the bar... It was an accident, Trig, a terrible accident that's all. You have to forgive yourself."

"Thanks, Dave."

the clues were there with Trigger's face faintly supposed imposed on all the most haunting scenes

JamesTC

Trigger is called that because he carries round a gun.

NICE JUBBLY.

Essentially - I love the opening titles of the Slovenian version. They're exactly what a modern remake of the show should look like. And the van is good.
