I McHunt Alex Ferguson calls BBC Radio 5 Live (audio)

by | 21st, December 2011

I McHunt calls into Mark Chapman’s BBC Radio 5 Live’s 606 football show. Tweeter I McHunt wants to share his views on Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson.

That Chapman reads the tweet from I McHunt before a live studio audience watching the show at the BBC’s Philharmonic Studio in Salford, Manchester, did not reduce its punch.

As Chapman says:

“I McHunt says Alex Ferguson … oh no.”

Cue laughter and a standing ovation lasting a full minute.

Chapman apologises for falling for “the oldest one in the book“.  It was a cunning plot that duped not only Chapman but the researchers who found it on twitter and the show’s producers.

The I McHunt Alex Ferguson line has attracted not a single complaint to the BBC.
