Youth hosteling with Chris Eubank

MPH teamed up with Lucky Generals and Hostelworld to make Alan Partridge’s TV pitch idea ‘Youth Hostelling with Chris Eubank’ almost a reality. We were tasked with producing a mock trailer following the current twitter hype surrounding this joke set 18 years ago on the Alan Partridge’s show – as Chris Eubank still didn’t get Coogan’s joke!

Based at the YHA in Brighton, Kelvin Hutchins and a skeleton crew shot this in an afternoon and edited though the night in order to meet the quick turnaround. Chris was an absolute pleasure to work with and his humour and willingness this make this long running joke a reality, was brilliant.

The video was a great success and has received over 255K hits on YouTube and awarded Campaign Magazines ‘Pick of the Week’ and made it into Beak Street Bugle’s ‘High Fives’ of the month. Watch the ad here
