If the Queen’s thoughts at Christmas don’t set your pulse racing, maybe a message from Gorillaz’ bass player Murdoc is more up your street. Mobile company 3 is offering its customers this unique take on 2005 absolutely free.
Without giving too much away, the speech covers a range of subjects that are unlikely to be on the agenda for the traditional version. Donning a crown and perched on a throne, Murdoc rants and raves about the political, social and artistic highs and lows of the past year. From the ascent of James Blunt to the demise of the Routemaster bus, Murdoc weaves the landmark events of 2005 into his own "state of the nation" address. Predictions for the year to come include an imminent apocalypse and the advent of the age of giant mental human mouse!
The 3 minute speech will be available to download free on 3 from Christmas morning until the end of the year. To access the speech, click the Planet 3 button on your handset and then click on the Gorillaz icon on "Today on 3".
