We should probably explain why Table Tennis Touch is full of Alan Partridge quotes. Well, we just love Alan… in a way. Who doesn’t!? When sitting down at someone’s dining table, who isn’t compelled to ask if it’s an extender?
So when we started adding the in-game commentary to TTT (like “great shot!” and “good placement”), it obviously reminded us of Alan’s amazing sports commentary in The Day Today. We decided to add some Alan-isms to the list and, before we knew it, the game was full of comedy gold like “Cashback!”, “Kiss my face!” and “Back of the net!”. We thought it was ruddy hilarious.
We know at least FOUR people who have appreciated this very culture-specific joke; three of them are our friends. So the question on our minds is: what do you think of this nonsense if you’ve never heard of the Norfolk legend that is Alan Gordon Partridge?
