Do you remember “If my Grandmother had wheels, she would’ve been a bike”?
How about “You want some? I’ll give it ya”? Or maybe “I’ve had to go to Burger King” and “Why you coming fast?”.
Oh, and of course there’s “DISGUSTANG” and “Dear Lord, what a sad little life Jane”?
Honestly, how could you forget? That’s probably a better question.
If you are unfamiliar with any of these though, they’re quotes taken from what are considered to be some of the best British memes of all time, and are just a few of the absolutely hilarious moments from tv shows, viral videos and more to be featured in the ongoing video series Iconic British Quotes created by the popular meme account – @goodoldbritishmemes – on the video sharing platform TikTok this week.
At the time of writing, there’s a total of four videos in the series and there’s some real corkers in there, so it’s no wonder they’re racking up hundreds of thousands of views and people are loving them.
Just have a look for yourself.
We won’t spoil the rest.
The videos have amassed an impressive accumulative figure of over 500K views in just a few short days.
And they’re only a selection of the nostalgic comedy content that @goodoldbritishmemes is known for putting out, with the Primary School Memories series also proving to be a hit with viewers.
You can head on over to @goodoldbritishmemes on TikTok to watch the other videos in the Iconic British Quotes series, and be sure to keep your eyes peeled for more compilations posted in the coming weeks, as given its increasing popularity, you can bet there’s a few more gems to come.
And let’s face it, us Brits haven’t exactly got a shortage of ‘iconic quotes’ to feature from over the years either.
Architect video shows the progress of the ever-changing Greater Manchester skyline
A building planner and architecture firm’s new YouTube video shows the remarkable progress of Greater Manchester’s ever-changing skyline.
VU.CITY is a city-planning firm based out of London that specialises in building out 3D platforms which render both existing, developing and future structures.
Better yet, it shows a 3D visual representation of what they will look like in the coming months and years.
It’s even crazier to think what the trajectory of this video would have looked if you wound the clock back even by another 10 years.
As you can, not only has the company shown city’s skyline evolves over time, the company recently highlighted both central and Greater Manchester, highlighting the likes of Salford, Salford Quays and Stockport as they continue to grow.
While plenty of people have been understandably concerned over Manchester’s ever-changing skyline, especially post-2020’s Manctopia programme about the local property boom, the money these new-builds and developments have generated in the city cannot be denied.
Not only is Manchester one of the fastest-growing cities in Europe but two different towns in the region have been named among the best places to live in Britain over the past 12 months alone, but the city centre itself was named by Time Out as one of the best locations to visit anywhere in the UK.
It’s no wonder some of the happiest people in the country also live here, apparently.
Just lots of people telling us what we already know: Manchester is mint and thanks to its ever-changing skyline, it’s only looking more attractive to city types.
The Holiday is apparently getting a sequel after 17 years and it’s featuring the original cast
One of the best-loved festive films is apparently set to get a sequel 17 years after the original was released.
There’s no denying that The Holiday is an absolute Christmas classic at this point.
Released all the way back in 2006, the romantic comedy film stars Kate Winslet and Cameron Diaz as Iris and Amanda – two lovelorn women from opposite sides of the pond who arrange a home exchange to escape heartbreak during the Christmas season.
However, their lives change unexpectedly when they meet and fall in love with two local lads played by Jack Black and Jude Law.
The Holiday is a film many like to stick on each time the festive season rolls around, and if you’re one of those with it on your watch list each year, then you’ll be pleased to know that the whole cast has reportedly agreed to film a sequel.
According to reports in The Sun doing the rounds today, Winslet, Diaz, Black, and Law are all said to have “signed on” to return.
Filming for the sequel is set to kick off next year, according to insiders.
The insider told The Sun: “The plan is to start rolling on scenes next year, primarily in the U.K. and in Europe, but the main talent are all signed up and on board.
“It’s one of the most successful movies of its kind and still enjoyed every year by millions of fans around the world – it makes perfect sense to revisit those characters and find out what became of their lives after they hooked up.
“It’ll be funny, poignant, and heartwarming – just what everyone wants for Christmas.”
Although the sequel is said to be in the works, it’s all very up in the air at the moment as no further details about the plot have been released.
