SARAH THE TALKING RAM

Posted in Derren's Posts

Posted by Derren Brown February 17, 2010 at 11:43 am

First debauched video of the tour. This was late in Torquay, and features Sarah, a ram (?) bought from the Marble Museum gift shop, showing off her talking skills. This followed a gigglesome evening in front of YouTube, watching the talking cats and dogs compilation you’ll be no doubt familiar with (if not, watch first, otherwise this will be even more pointless). Iain donned Sarah, hid behind the chair and is doing the voice.

This may be a waste of valuable minutes for you in the cold light of day, but at the time we nigh on wat ourselves.

Do the men who stare at goats know about this?

If it makes you feel any better, Derren, there are several breeds of sheep where the females have horns. Not sure there are that many that sound like a baby breathing helium though…

Haha, I love it. I don’t know how Iain managed that voice… but kudos to him!

LOL Having watched that little compilation, now I can see where the “Do you love your mamma?” came from! Absolutely hilarious! I’d seen some of those animals ‘talking’ in that clip before but not all.

My cat once ‘spoke’ to me in the back garden and I was so freaked out by it I had to walk away!

Very funny….certainly made me laugh, Derren! πŸ˜€

Hm, what shall I say ….

Does Lian takes some .. steroids (the reversed kind) to be capable to perform?
I can see some talent in there .. the way the ram poses .. the insight in how it needs to hold
its face … yeah, def. some talent there .. Could be something big.

It may be a waste of valuable minutes, but it did bring a touch of sparkle and a smile to my otherwise dull and freezing cold day. I can’t wait to see what amusing knick knacks and pieces of tourist tat you manage to find when you come up to Bradford in April!! xx

Formal yet Friendly Greeting!!!…

Random weak comment involving your video!
(regretting not being smarter and funnier)

Endless appreciation for your Tv Shows( /Performances/Artwork/Jiggery Pokery),… long drawn out examples of why i think its important to give people a more cerebral viewing experience and how well i think you’ve done.

Incredibly witty and relevant use of filthy puns involving ‘Ovis’.

Bit of back and forth banter,…

Promises to catch up whenever he’s in New Zealand.

After having watched your videos Derren I have concluded that you have a very odd but amusing social group. But why so odd? :

I am familiar with the ‘talking pets’ on you tube,as pathetic as they are.
I suppose we would all like to believe that our pets understand us,and I am definitely guilty of chatting to my dog.Notice I say chatting ‘to’ my dog,not ‘with.
Let’s face it;anyone who says their pets can talk needs psychiatric help.
You Tube has a lot to answer for,on many levels

hahahaha… I watched the cats and dogs compilation and my cat went nuts! He’s still looking around the house for the “hello” cat! That was so funny…. Off to cat comfort (poor thing)… Thanks Derren!! xxx

Haven’t seen this yet as I can’t get some pics and videos on my work computer but looking forward to getting home to have a look.

Can the shepherd’s daughter in me please just point out that there is no such thing as a female ram. Ram = male. You can however have female sheep, goats, cows etc. with horns.

Oh bless you Derren. πŸ˜€ That goat is just the sweetest thing! Sarah did a wonderful job there. πŸ™‚

Ah, talking cats/dogs … isn’t it amazing that when someone tells you what to hear you indeed will hear and hardly can not hear that after that? As with optical illusions a bit .. although not really.
A program here on tv, Toren, a female actress is busy with paper dolls behind her desk. The dolls are on a stick and she does an act with them and herself. Including the funny voices. You have to see it to get it inside, but hey ..

I hate my mouse pad on this laptop .. it wont accept my finger touch .. that to the side (not that it would itnerest you, but hey .. I’m here .. have fingers and they will speak)

Listening to Derren snicker in the backround is the best part. It makes me giggle, like a laugh track that actually has an effect.

That’s not a ram, it’s a Highland cow. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Highland_cattle
Or, well, maybe a really ginger ram, I suppose.

I just laughed out loud at both vids. Hilarious. My late cat Marie could repeat her own name (‘Mrrree?’) — maybe I should train my latest cat to speak like these! πŸ˜›

Loved this video so much, when I was passing The House of Marbles couldnt resist popping in for a Sarah.
She is indeed a Highland cow as it says on the label, the name was covered by the price sticker to be fair,
Just looking at the puppet sitting on a fire extingisher makes me laugh now.

The enigma is a great show Ive saw it twice and would happily watch it again and again.


March 1, 2010 at 3:12 pm

And who is this poking out of Iain’s jacket??? πŸ˜€ (Derren introduced Sarah to us too!)
