If there’s anything more undignified than begging for money on the internet, it’s the four-day sleepless YouTube marathon Bogof did over Easter watching every single Portas Pilot video entry back to back.

Since we flagged up some early favourites a few weeks back, the trickle grew into a raging torrent. Hundreds of videos made it online before the deadline.

Late arrivals included a video from Croydon Old Town that’s far more frightening than anything seen during the riots, mostly comprising angry-looking men shouting into the camera.

And topping the viewer ratings with 6,000 views is a comic surrealist masterpiece from Seaham.

This proves that at least a few people out there like watching grumpy Geordies getting bullied into dancing awkwardly to euphoric European trance music. Hopefully Dame Mary is one of them.
