UK Fans: Help Get Karl Pilkington (An Idiot Abroad) To Xmas No.1

Hey guys,

I know this is slightly unrelated to TV, but it seems like a worthy place to gain support, seeing as The X Factor & An Idiot Abroad are both TV Shows.

As many UK fans know, The X Factor has dominated the one highly sought after Christmas Number One from 2005-present, with the one exception being 2009 when the UK rebelled by pushing Rage Against The Machine's "Killing In The Name" above winner Joe McElderry.

Last year, numerous unsuccessful attempts were made to beat the X-Factor train, but this year one quite original idea is beginning to catch on...

In TV "documentary" An Idiot Abroad this year, the ever popular Karl Pilkington, known for his work with comedian Ricky Gervais & Stephen Merchant, suggested his song of choice was Chaz & Dave's "Ain't No Pleasing You" leading him to record it for the final moments of the TV Series' run.

Now, a campaign has been set in motion to get the "Idiot" to number one this Christmas with his rendition of the song, performed alongside Chaz & Dave.

Half the trouble so far, is that the support needs to grow more to ensure that Ricky Gervais and co. will release the single in time for the December 18th starting date, so show your support behind the campaign!

And of course, the most important part of the campaign is this, the official music video:

I assume if you are in the UK, the Xmas No.1 has been something you've grown up with, so stop The X Factor Domination, and show your support now!

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
