This is a video I made for the Jonathan Coulton song ‘Just As Long As Me’ in December of 2010.
It features pictures of the very tall and very funny comedian Stephen Merchant.
I became a fan of Stephen Merchant through his work with Ricky Gervais and Karl Pilkington, in programs such as The Ricky Gervais Show, Extras and An Idiot Abroad.
I also loved him in Portal 2, a game to which Jonathan Coulton provided a song. That game may be the reason I made a video that links the two performers in the first place.
By complete happenstance, Stephen Merchant actually had his head out of frame in a newspaper article, almost like what happens in the song.
