The late and much-missed BBC Radio Ulster presenter Gerry Anderson, who also presented the short-lived Anderson Country on BBC Radio 4, had a unique style.
In one legendary encounter, he took a call from a man struggling with the results of the old chalk-line chicken hypnosis trick—and let it go on a rollercoaster ride of emotion and hilarity.
It inspired the animators Flickerpix animation listing her as one of them On The Air with Gerry Anderson episodes. Look. You won’t be disappointed.
Not a second is wasted – comedy gold from start to finish.
The hilarious video found its way onto Twitter and Paul O’Kane summed up the experience.
