That was hilarious. Thank you for giving me something to giggle at this morning.

What a charming little film! I hope his 'owner' enjoyed it as much...

Cringing Wretch said...

Well done, but did you really put it in a drink, stamps and all?

Valerie said...

Utterly adorable. Thanks, John!

That was lovely and funny and cheered my day up no end!

That's sooooooo sweet!! Brilliant!!

Cristina said...

Allow me to correct the caption on one of the first frames:

"A brilliant thing by John Finnemore."

This made my day much happier than I thought it could be. :D Thank you too, good sir!

KathyNerissa said...

Utter genius! Bravo, Boncore and Bye Bye lemon.

Patricia Cáceres said...

I wish I were that LEMON!!!
Ojala fuera ese Limón

Christine said...

Brilliant. No less.

Kaitebon said...

The stamps are perfect!

Andrew Bossom said...

You were in Frankfurt! Just around the corner from me! You should have said: I'd have guided you safely through the horrors of the German menu.

Christine said...

Remind me of a friend's friend, who kidnapped his neighbours garden gnome and took it travelling with him. Over the following months, the neighbour regularly received photos of the gnome in various places around the world. I'll probably steal the idea one day and do something similar. Although with something less cumbersome than a garden gnome. They are notoriously xenophobic.

Trina Dubya said...

Thank goodness my boss didn't find me until after I'd got the giggles under control. The stamps were a nice touch!

Nu said...

Haha! What a lovely way to say 'thank you'.

Karen Rupp said...

That was absolutely cute, and I'm so happy you actually took the time to take pics, compile them into a little video, and all as a way to say thank you to the Lemons and Landmarks contributors (which I wasn't one, but that was because I didn't discover Cabin Pressure until that book was in the very last stages so that's a missed chance).

Fruitbat said...

This is such an utter delight. And, for the record, so are you.

Though I am amused your local fruit vendor has fancy baskets. Honestly mine came in a plastic net from Morrissons. (Yet ultimately they all end up in the same place... sunk in a big glass full of gin.)

Laimelde said...

Excellent fun, thanks for making it!

Beth Allen said...

You never cease to amaze me as to how lovely a guy you are. You really are the gift that keeps on giving. Bless you and continue being your fabulously wonderful self.

flubber2kool said...

Oh John. You are really wonderful. As a contributor to the Lemons and Landmarks project I want to say thank you for your thank you. An unexpected pleasure.

Fruitbat not all lemons meet their fate in Big glasses of gin. Mine and up in big glasses of coke instead or rather ironically in large glasses of tonic! :D

Emily said...

This has brightened my day considerably.

You are BRILLIANT and it was a pleasure to take a lemon to the oldest operating airport in the world for you - Nea

lilian.thigh said...

Oh to be that lemon, seeing the world, to sit next to that amazing looking chocolate torte...

shezan said...

As another contributor to the Lemons & Landmarks - THANK YOU for your THANK YOU! (and for all the laughs, because Cabin Pressure is BRRRRILLIANT!)

Anonymous said...

This was awesome/adorable!! Wow. I didn't find out about the lemon book until it was done with (otherwise I so would have sent pix in). Love the honky-tonk piano (Douglas playing? lol) and the accumulation of stamps. Perfect video! Thanks for making it :)

You are the most adorable man ever. And the Lemons and Landmarks project is wonderful, congrats to those involved for their excellent work on behalf of the fandot!

Aimee said...

Despite my husband's insistence that no man EVER wants to be called adorable, I can't think of a better word to describe this. And you're welcome.

Samantha said...

That was a joy to behold. xx

Dzidka said...

Laughing to tears, youcrazy little man :D

Brilliant! Thank you, Mr Finnemore, for a lovely video and giving me my laugh for the day.

Jenny Gonzalez said...

John Finnemore I couldnt love you more!

Tg said...

Thanks for the laughs you wonderfully gifted person. Keep on being brilliant!!!

Nenya said...

That was really just one lemon?
Great video.

Blisskat said...

I am not a robot...and I cannot go a day without listening to at least one episode of CP...so this is a bonus happiness for me. Merci very much, Mr. F :)

I was having such a bad day and now I can't stop grinning. John, thank you for being so adorable, and for taking the time to make this!

Well done Kayleigh - and everyone else involved in making Mr Finnemore as happy as he makes us! Just watched the clip of the hand-over of the book - wow.
What a lovely way to start the day watching both videos - thank you to everyone involved.

How do you always manage to find an interesting extra twist? The stamps are a brilliant idea. Thanks for this warmhearted piece of fun - good description of you really!

Judith Russell said...

Dear Mr Finnemore, I consider myself to be an intelligent professional person so could you please tell me why, since buying the box set of Cabin Pressure only a month ago, I can't stop myself from playing yellow car even when I'm in a car where people have never heard the series (and doesn't that get you into strange conversations)? Why I'm planning my holidays around places I can photograph a lemon? and why I have a sudden desire to taste 25 year old Talisker? Is it perhaps because you are a comedy genius?
Anyway I just wanted you to know that you have the power to change lives so be careful how you use it! Your comedy writing is amazing please keep doing things like this video and making people smile- J

Meg said...

I love it. So lovely!!!+ stupid!!!
Hope "travelling lemon around the world" next time.

Daedalus said...

The adventurous Mr. Finnemore arrives in the USA, buys a lemon in Boston (at Wholefoods, of course) and sets out. He cheerfully works his way across the country until he reaches the California state border.

At which point the lemon is confiscated and pulped.

Brilliant!
But - wait a minute! You've been to Munich and didn't even bother to call on us? Shame on you. No wonder you stranded at the Ratskeller without any guidance by us knowing locals!
I only hope we'll be spared from the travelling lemon virus. As we haven't been from yellow car...

Anonymous said...

Thanks for the video - great! (I took lemon photos on behalf of another of your fans who couldn't get out to do it.) When my family travel with me they always play yellow car and I never win so I've succombed to playing it on my own so I can.

This is just the cutest damned thing, especially with the culinary interjections--"ooh, croissants!"

Just ordered CP Series 4 on CD to add to the version merrily occupying iTunes on my laptop. Long live John Finnemore!

John, you are too cute. This made my day!

Blue in CA said...

OK, since it looks like I am among other freaks I can admit that we use Cabin Pressure as part of our geography curriculum for homeschooling our quirky and whimsical 8 year-old. The Travelling Lemon video is going to be his final, one he will happily take on! Thanks for making us smile John! Cheers!

Yellow Car!

Linette Moccia-LeBlanc said...

Boncore! This was so great...brought such smiles to my face. I do hope there will be a sequel...Perhaps the lemon finds itself soaking in some Talisker in the end :)

Well done, you! Keep up the good work!

Reading this post reminds me of my old room mate! He always kept talking about this.I will forward this article to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read.Thanks for sharing!

Tara said...

Dear John F....

I have to say it is very good that we finally get the lemons to broaden their horizons a little. I mean, no lemon is an island. What does it mean, though, to go see continental Europe and then drown yourself? We should have taken better care of the poor thing over here. I'm not blaming you. Just saying, next time you plan a lemon-excursion, let us know so that we can set up a welcome committee including psychological support.

But then again, I do understand that travel is adventure...thank you for making intercultural exchanges possible. And hooray for that courageous lemon.
BRILLIANT!

How awesome is the cover illustration on Lemons and Landmarks! That's *exactly* how Martin looks - none of your Cumberbatch nonsense! (Except his hat is probably bigger than that in real life)

I literally love this!

You seriously are the most adorable man in the world! <3

Kate Onyett said...

The Travelling Lemon was played to much amusement in the media cafe at the BBC HQ just before your recordings last night. And it was inaugurated by a Dutch girl, who had flown over especially to see the show as a pre-university treat. Now that is commitment. And proof you are International in flavour.
I spent all evening thinking "that John Finnemore looks like a shorter, slightly heavier version of a Bee Gee when he smiles."
And I hunted the lemon, too.

Charlie Rowen said...

That video was one of the best things I've ever seen, and Cabin Pressure is one of the best things I've ever heard, incidentally. I'm working in France as an au pair over the summer and I've been really missing my family and England in general, but your series has massively cheered me up (I've got all four of them now) and I just wanted to say: thank you, you are brilliant.
