At a time when we desperately needed a bit of sunshine in our miserable lives, hopes were running high here at lowculture towers for the new Gareth Gates single.
The signs were good, ie:
» Gareth has been looking hotter than ever.
» It's called Sunshine.
Unfortunately, the single itself is bad. This is because:
» It reminds us of Kavana's Crazy Chance (and, to a lesser extent, Kavana's Crazy Chance '97).
» The video marks the first recorded instance of a popstar being wet in a video and not looking better for it.
» It's no Anyone Of Us (Stupid Mistake), is it?
» I mean (that is to say, we mean) it DOESN'T EVEN HAVE BRACKETS (IN THE TITLE).
» Is that a fucking MULLET? And not even one of the 'new' mullets! It's just ... a mullet.
They're just taking the piss now.

According to Marxist theory, cultural forms such as opera, classical music and the literary works of Shakespeare all fall under the heading of high culture. Low culture refers to a wide variety of cultural themes that are characterised by their consumption by the masses.
We might not be Marxists, but we do know we loved Footballers Wives. If you do too, you'll know what this is all about.
