Eurogamer meets Monty Python
Terries Jones and Gilliam talk games.
Usually when we interview celebrities about videogames, they claim to like them. Gemma Atkinson told us she enjoys playing while on the toilet, for example, while Konnie Huq declared herself to be a fan of SimAnimals.
So it made a nice change to interview Terry Jones and Terry Gilliam - two famous people happy to say they couldn't give a toss, are only in it for the money and don't even really understand how the whole thing works.
They're hawking new Facebook games portal The Ministry of Silly Games. Free to access and due to launch next year, it'll feature a host of games based on classic Monty Python nonsense.
These include Camelot Smashalot and Gumby Flower Arranging - direct descendants, ahem, of Angry Birds and Bejeweled. Other offerings include Space Invaders-style shooter Gillaxian, puzzler Aerial Antics and self-explanatory Twit Roulette.
So what else can we expect from the Ministry? Why did the Terries get involved? Whose idea was it for David Bowie to wear those grey tights in Labyrinth? In this video, the Terries answer all these questions and more. We've also included a transcript of the interview for people at work, as the video does contain shrieking.
My God! You don't mean... No no no no no no no!
I never touched your mother! It was him!
I deny it, I deny it!
We apologise. Are you happy with your life?
Ellie, we would like to talk about you, as much as possible.
Because we've been in the virtual world far too long. We want to get back to real people, flesh and blood.
Breathless. We're breathless with excitement.
No, I've no idea about Facebook actually.
We're very lonely old men.
People say, 'Will you agree to be a friend?' or something like that, and I always do accept.
Yes. But I never do anything with it, I never chase them up or anything like that.
We believe in anti-social networks. That's what we're fighting for these days. A chance to be alone. Now that's the thing - can you be alone on Facebook?
