Barry (the Token Black Guy) Turns 18
Shaun Is Left Amazed By His Manly Facial
So Young. And Yet, So Much Facial Hair.
Congratulations to Cape-Town's-most-famous-coloured-guy-called-Barry,
Barry, who had a recent birthday soiree at FTV
this past Wednesday.
A bit of a legend in this country (as well as in Sweden interestingly
enough) Barry is of course best known for that famous cough
mixture advert from the 80's with the payoff line - "It's
because I'm a children".
Yes, I know what you're thinking - that was a white kid
in that advert.
Well, Barry was in the TV 2 version. You know,
the channel you never really watched because you didn't understand
what they were saying?
I believe he spoke Sotho. Or Tswana. One of the two.
Anyhoo, happy birthday Barry. I ... I ... I love you.
As a friend.
