Hollywood’s awards season kicked off last night with the Golden Globes, celebrating the best in TV and movies.

Watch this: hilarious vid from Euro 2016!

23 Jun 2016

Hero, over at Muddy Bucks & Oxon, laughed so hard watching this that she just had to share. And yes, it is very funny — so if you’ve not seen it, check it out. Comedian Aldrig Kede Sig does his thing with footage of DJ David Guetta at the opening ceremony of the Euros 2016. And yes, it’s incredibly silly and puerile – but sometimes that’s just what you need.
