'Strand-ed at Home?' is a mockumentary-style response to our new ways of working and living during COVID-19.
Presented by Those Who Can’t, Northern Ireland’s most dynamic comedy trio; who, sadly, like everyone, are stuck in the house social distancing and they won't lie to you – it’s starting to take its toll.
Join our heroes, Dan, Rach and Steve, as they valiantly try not to crack up completely in the safety of their own homes – yes, it’s “Those Who Can’t Are Locked Down”.
HOW WILL IT HELP YOUR STAFF?
These short, sharp, satirical videos provide commentaries which prove topical and relatable - ideal to divert and entertain us from whatever we were doing, or pretending to be doing, before getting back to it.
Those Who Can’t will take inspiration from current memes & trends (e.g. balcony performances, painting rainbows, Zoom meetings and online parenting, cooking and keep fit). These videos aim to reflect the times we live in, help everyone’s mental health, and to bring some cheer to our social isolation.
