Just happened to see this on TV.  It’s a short film about Bob Geldof, and they actually managed to persuade the man himself to star in it.  (Though reports on the internet say that when the filming was all over, he said, “I’m never doing anything like that ever again.”)

Based around his reputation for being a cranky old fellow, this 19-minute short starts with Bob driving through the countryside with his chauffeur.  Due to a bit of a mixup during a toilet stop, Bob gets stranded outside a country pub in the middle of the night with no wallet and no phone.

Desperate to try to get some money to be able to leave the pub, he has no choice but to enter the “Celebrity Lookalike” competition that is taking place that night in the pub.

You can watch the whole thing here (but I should throw in a warning about the language).  Poor old Bob.  You do feel quite sorry for him by the end.
