  • The best video of the year

    Three Grammy's for Kendrick Lamar in this year's awards, including best video for 'Humble'. We'd better watch it then!

    Watch me!

    British ad agencies, look how it's done! One mindless, funny, bonkers brand new Skittles ad from the US, starring David Schimmer as you've never seen him before.

  • So… whaddya think?!

    The new John Lewis Xmas ad cost a cool £1m to make, but did the earth move for you?! Check out the vid and let me know.

  • The Fat Duck, Bray

    The waiting list just got longer. Heston Blumenthal's Berkshire restaurant adds another gastronomic gong to the trophy cabinet.

    Your catch-up viewing of one of the hottest award-shows of the year.

  • FIRST LOOK: The John Lewis Christmas ad!

    It’s easy to feel manipulated with the glut of carefully packaged Christmas TV ads that come our way through November and December, and lordy knows my own cynical gene is horrifically overdeveloped. But hats off to John Lewis, early deliverers of the Christmas message of ‘gifts for everyone’ – the company has delivered a clever, […]

  • Watch this: Spike Jonze’s ground-breaking Kenzo ad

    Do you have a spare three minutes? Well, you might want to make the time to see this. It’s a perfume advert from Japanese brand Kenzo, but it’s seriously unlike any you’ve seen before – about as polar opposite to the breathy, randy escapism that we’re so often expected to put up with – a […]

  • Antiques Roadshow is coming to Caversham Park!

    Quick! Get up your loft and start rummaging – BBC One’s Antiques Roadshow is coming to Caversham Park this Sunday 26 June! Yes indeedy, foxy Fiona Bruce and the team will be filming the next episode in the 39th (wowzers) series of the show at BBC Radio Berkshire’s HQ, Caversham Park. Apparently, the show was last in Berkshire […]

  • WATCH THIS: Hilarious vid of Euro 2016!

    When a video makes me weep with laughter, I figure it’s worth sharing. This classic from comedian Aldrig Kede Sig reached Mr Muddy’s Facebook feed last night, made it across the sofa to me, and I’m still finding it funny today. It features DJ David Guetta at the opening ceremony of the Euros 2016 and […]

  • EEK! See the trailer for Bridget Jones 3!

      Who cares if it’s not out until September?! The new trailer for Bridget Jones’s Baby has been squirreled out onto You Tube and people, let me tell you, it’s looking very very funny. I can just about forgive Renee Zellweger for messing around with that lovely face of hers, because thankfully she still does […]

  • Listen: Jack Garratt will put some poke in your playlist

    As a child of the 80s my musical tastes were definitely shaped by keyboards – Depeche Mode, Howard Jones, Erasure, in fact practically every band I can think of back then had someone bashing away on a keyboard at some point in the music vid (usually wearing eye-liner that looked like it had been applied by a toddler). […]

  • OMG, you’ll LOVE this Beckham ad!!!

    If you read Muddy regularly you’ll know I have a bit of a love-hate thing going on with David Beckham’s ad campaigns. He’s a handsome man and all, but his level of smouldering-under-wrinkled-browness over recent years has been making me feel a bit peaky. Now Mr Beckham has expressed his intention to go into acting […]
