It’s HYYYYDRO-Matic!

Another YouTube find: The boys from Corrie performing ‘Grease Lightning.’ Looks to be a few years old by the looks of Craig and David. And did Kirkeh just say ‘pussy wagon’?

I like stuff like this because in Canada, we rarely see these actors in any other context than the actual show.

This was done as part of a special broadcast for Children in Need.

    I recognise Ashley, Tyrone, David, Kevin, Craig, Kirk… But I can’t for the life of me remember the other guys name. I think he was one of the cabbies?

    And now I will have this song in my head for days… Oh joy.

    I think his name was Pete(?). He was a cabbie. Slept with Eileen back in the day (she was unimpressed with his gear shaft, as I recall). He played in a ska band with Eileen in the 1980’s. Also had a very brief fling with Janice. He’s since left the show.

    I like how Ashley’s wig makes him look like Jon Voight.

    Thank you! I couldn’t remember that guy either.

    I love this out of context stuff. Really fun!

    The idea of Kir-keh saying ‘pussy’ is still making me cringe. Yikes!

    Given that they’re pretty strict about what words can and cannot be used on Corrie, it was surprising.

    I think the show got in trouble when somebody said ‘bastard.’

    Of course, the real Kirkeh would think the car was intended to drive cats around.

    They’ve been using the word bitch quite a lot lately though, which I’ve found surprising
