Subject: Shakespearean FA Cup Promos
More notes for the appropriations-of-Shakespeare files:
I noted today that the BBC is running promotional ads for its upcoming
broadcasts of the FA Cup semifinals which include Shakespeare quotes on
the voice over ("To be or not to be", "Once more into the breach," etc.)
as we see a montage of agonizing/agonized footballers. The conclusion
of the promo gives the teams in question, with dates and times, with the
voice-over stating, "The FA Semifinals. Great drama".
Or was it "Exceptional Drama"? Sorry, when the quotes stopped, so did
For what it's worth.
