Arthur: In Trouble With Irish Banks
Everyone's getting all hot and bothered about the new Arthur (2011) remake. "Russel Brand is an abomination", they're saying. Well whatever. I don't think I could watch the remake anyway. From the trailer, all the jokes are shit and flawed. I decided to take another look at the original. From watching it I feel that if they had to remake it, Dylan Moran might have been a better choice (I seem to often say he would be a better choice for things, I don't even like the man). A cantankerous drunk, much better altogether. Anyway...
So I was watching and the story progressed, and they ended up in the "Bach Building", which is where Arthur's family wealth is tied up (his full name is Arthur Bach, you see). What does one spy also on the wall of the building? Oh nothing except the Bank of Ireland name and logo. Admittedly, it's not as bad as seeing an Anglo or even AIB logo but it's still funny to wonder how fucked he and his wealth would be if he was around today in general. I'm speaking the character of Arthur of course, not Dudly Moore, because Dudly Moore is dead.
