 "If you don't look round the corner,  you will just go round the bend"



Matt Whistler has been reviewed as being the only annual Christmas song comedian. The Whistler loves a challenge and after a succession of high impact CGI Hollywood style virals, he hit the big time.

Matt Whistler shot to fame in 2010 when he helped inspire a campaign to get The Trashmen’s cult 1964 hit ‘Surfin’ Bird’ to the top of the charts. In nothing more than a Christmas Mankini and sexy lingerie combo, Matt Whistler became an Internet sensation and propelled the Surfin Bird track to number 3 in the official UK top 40 Christmas charts. The Viral was championed by Radio One DJ Scott Mills, Presenter Philip Schofield and liked on facebook by Eddie Izzard, Barry Cryer and the Cohen brothers.


The pop video was driven by another viral, filmed the day before the Surfin Bird shoot, when during the highest snowfall on record in Brighton, Matt sledged down a hill completely naked on a t-tray. The original uncensored video received over a million hits and when youtube banned the video there was an International uproar and Matt Whistler received over 10,000 facebook messages questioning youtube and there decision.  This lead to a debate about censorship and caused fury amongst his comedy fans at the removal of the viral.

In winter 2011 the t-tray video was re-edited into a more user friendly absurd pop video, with Matt Whistler's cover of Shakin Stevens Merry Christmas. After a late release the song sold only two tracks on i-tunes and that's only because Matt Whistler accidentally hit the.....  add to shopping cart .....button twice.

Matt Whistler says with icicles dangling from his chin:

" Comedy is all about the highs and lows, but ultimately the highs,

this was a disaster, or maybe not,  a slapstick fun and original

Christmas pop video was born. Or at least that's what I kept telling

myself in my Mohamed Ali vigorous determination

to climb the charts. Rooooah Rooooah I'm a tiger. " !!

The new video also created a cult following in Australia, resulting in locals being photographed for the Freemantle Herald whilst parading naked around the local market with nothing more than a t-tray for company.

 Matt Whistler says without false tears streaming down his face:


If it wasn't for the filming genius of the Convict Films production crew

and the music production of Latest Records, none of this would have been possible.”

Review from an American Fan:


When I found Surfin Bird on the internet over the holidays, I thought it was one of the funniest things I'd ever seen--up there with Dave Chapelle's flawless sketch about a southern black blind racist who doesn't know he's black himself. So I watched that video dozens of times, my favorite bits being when you look overwhelmed & pull up your bra strap, pass the police coming off the escalator, and dance with people at their shop door.  The Brighton and Hove city council should use it as a promotional video.  It expresses so well the alluringly eccentric character of Brighton.  Kept my spirits up.
