BBC Weatherman Laces Report With Drag References

Pink News reports:

A BBC weather presenter has gone viral for his epic drag themed weather report. Host Owain Wyn Evans decided to embrace International Drag Day – with a challenge to get as many drag culture references in one report as possible.

The Welsh weather host manages to get in references to everything from RuPaul through to Conchita Wurst during the 90-second clip. Speaking of incoming rain, the BBC host declares: “I hope you didn’t get Courtney Act in any downpours. So that weather front has indeed sashayed away.”

    If anyone can make 23C sound like a wonderful thing in the middle of July, he can.
    This was splendid!

    • marshlc

      23 C is a lovely mild summer day. About 74 F

      • fuow

        Being from Germany, I’m quite well aware of what that temperature feels like. Emphasis on ‘mild’. I enjoy a few really hot days in summer. Not a whole summer, but at least a few. Spent too many holidays as a child visiting relations on the Outer Hebrides to not know the difference.

    • Kruhn

      I would die for 23°C in July anytime! It’s high 30s again by midweek, ugh!

    Please allow me to introduce my newly found drag name.

    Pebbles’ Gardens. In honor of the Flintstones I’ve begun, as a new hobby, making Pebbles’ Gardens. If I take it to the stage, it’ll be a gardening advice act. Dirt will be flung.

    • Derrick Johns

      I would never fling dirt at you, my dear TuuxKabin. Maybe some horse manure but never dirt.

      • TuuxKabin

        Gardening does involve fertilizer. You get front row seat, it’s from the stage things will be flung. Audience will have arms strapped down on arm rests. =;o)

        • Derrick Johns


          • TuuxKabin

            You’ll be comp’d. How many seats would you like? =;o)

  • LOVES IT. Put a smile on my face this Monday morning!
