The vast majority of Palace fans are now aware of the “Palace Minute” series of videos, a humorous take on the biggest moment in our club’s history via the medium of stop-go animation. Thankfully, the man behind them has returned with a bumper edition following the conclusion of the 2017/18 season and it’s up there with the best yet.
Taking on the idea of a Palace-themed Royal Variety Performance, we are treated to different songs from Roy Hodgson, Wilfried Zaha, Julian Speroni, Christian Benteke, Patrick van Aanholt, Steve Parish and James Tomkins over the course of 11 minutes with the Queen and Prince Phillip watching on from the stalls in a state of joyous amazement.
If the sight of our gaffer putting his own spin on “I Will Survive”, Wilfried Zaha using a Beatles number to have a not-so-subtle dig at Brighton & Hove Albion or Eagles chairman Steve Parish giving his own personal take on the Annie classic “Tomorrow” doesn’t put even the merest hint of a smile on your face, I’m not sure what will.
Having made these videos for years now, (this is the 28th installment in a series which is set to grow and grow) “Bubbs” as he is affectionately known, has asked the Palace fan-base to help him raise money for his daughter Katerina, who suffers with something called Fragile X Syndrome, a condition that has led them to plan a trip to California in search of medical help.
As you can imagine, such treatment doesn’t come cheap with “Bubbs” asking anyone who is willing and able to spare a few extra pennies towards the cost to do so on the link provided on the video attached above.
If you are struggling to find it and would like to donate towards Katerina yourself, you can do so by clicking here. I personally can’t think of many better causes to send a few extra pounds towards, particularly when you consider the enjoyment Nick’s videos have given all of us over the years.
