Alex Lifeson guest appearance in new Netflix movie Trailer Park Boys: Live in Fu**in' Dublin
2:20PM EST | comments (8) |

While touring the Ricky, Julian and Bubbles Community Service Variety Show last year, footage from The Trailer Park Boy's May 9, 2013 performance at the Olympia Theatre in Dublin, Ireland was collected for a concert film. The film was released as a Netflix Original program this past Sunday June 1st in the US and is titled Trailer Park Boys: Live in Fu**in' Dublin. The beginning of the film shows an excited Bubbles tell Ricky and Julian that he has won a Rush internet contest to determine Rush's biggest fan. To enter the contest, Bubbles had Ricky and Julian help him recreate Rush's Closer to the Heart video - kimonos and all - as pictured in this screenshot. Bubbles dresses up as Alex, Julian as Neil and Ricky (with fake nose) is Geddy Lee. A portion of the video shoot can be seen towards the beginning of the film at about the 2-minute mark. Alex Lifeson sends Bubbles a video telling him that he won, and the boys all gather around a laptop computer to watch it at about the 5-minute mark in the film (screenshot here). Alex congratulates Bubbles on the video, but points out that Ricky's performance really sucked. He also informs him that as winners of the contest he and 3 friends will get flown to Dublin in a private jet to see the band's show there along with a $1000 spending money. The film's opening credits then run with Rush's Limelight playing in the background as the guys get on the Rush plane to Ireland. They then get arrested after they land and are sentenced by a court to serve community service by throwing a puppet show discouraging drug and alcohol use. The actual live concert footage is then shown starting at around the 19-minute mark. The show includes a partial live performance of Closer to the Heart and Limelight by Bubbles at about the 1-hr, 10-minute mark. At the end of the film they then play the actual Rush video for Closer to the Heart alongside the Trailer Park Boys recreation as the credits run. Thanks to khrush for the heads up.

re: #7

Also a huge TPB fan, and yes, their stage show was pretty weak on this, but I thought their homemade CTTH video was one of the MOST hilarious things I've seen in a very long time. Definitely check it out, but only for that.

Ecchhh. I tried watching this last night and it was really, really bad.

And I like the Trailer Park Boys! But they really crapped the bed with this one.

Avoid at all costs...

re: #5

Rik was not a Prog Rock fan, as evidenced by his comment in the episode "Boring":

"God I'm bored. I might as well be listening to Genesis!"

If only he could be brought back to life in a negative reality inversion...

#1 - I'm with you there, Rik Mayall was a hero and a much loved role model of my youth and his passing is very sad indeed, rest in peace People's Poet.

The Rush shirt in The Young Ones was the ONLY Rush reference on British tv in the 80s, and that made it all the more awesome. I've often wondered who's idea it was to use it and whether they were a fan...

NO

If that's the title, that's the title. Ed shouldn't be receiving complaints about things like that. If Rush were sampled on Niggaz4Life (great album by the way) he should post that too.

I AM OFFENDED AT YOUR OFFENSE.

Classy title.

First...awesome news!

Almost balances out the sad news of losing Rik Mayall. Loved The Young Ones and Vyv's Rush shirt.
