You may recall Nick and Elroy appearing to defend Mr Secret Agent Man on an alternative and rather NSFW version of this Newsnight appearance. These chaps found their way out of a box during an attic-clearing process last year, and they now have a cosy little home (i.e. a brand new box) in my freshly-tidied office.

Nick and Elroy were built by me (along with another puppet that looks a lot like Michael Jackson when you take his sunglasses off) for the first music video I directed/produced for broadcast all the way back in 1995.

That video is now available online. I hope you enjoy it.

Trivia: That’s about 20 Australian dollars worth of icing sugar, just in case you’re wondering. The puppets were built using an old stuffed polar bear and the arms from an atrocious cardigan. The location was decided by a total failure of a battery unit; we were forced to string a series of extension cords together and shoot the external footage in the alley behind the studio.
