Anna Paquin

Anna Paquin

I blogged briefly about Cape Town comedy band, The Brothers Streep (of Steri-Stumpie fame) a few weeks back, and today, while checking my facebook feeds, I noticed a high volume of posts about their Anna Paquin song (they have a barely-healthy obsession with the actress, it would seem).

So I faithfully checked it out, and found that their antics had not gone unnoticed! Graham Norton of the Graham Norton show on BBC 1 found the song, and played a portion of it during an interview with Anna. Then, to top it off, he managed to rustle up the band on a Skype call during the show (how the bandwidth held out is another question), and an extra verse was then performed.

So why am I posting this? Well, I kinda know one of the guys in the band, so that kinda makes me a bit of a celebrity, and I thought you should all know.

Thanks for the post Kev. What a fun experience! We’ll see what effect the official broadcast has on our site traffic tonight…
Tim S Streep.

{Ok, act cool Baldric-Man, he may be a Streep, but he’s still mostly human…}
Thanks for commenting Tim, always a pleasure.

I don’t think Anna was expecting that, now was she. Well done guys on getting some international free marketing with getting on Edward Norton’s show – really do miss his shows since we’ve been back in SA, he’s such a laugh.

I was trying to figure out where I’d seen her last and thanks to the IMDB link realised it was her role as Rogue in the X-Men movies that I saw her – even in the interview she tended to “scrunch-up” her face at times 🙂
