A shortened version of the “Boemerang” sketch from the show gained popularity on YouTube. It features a presenter of a serious talk show breaking into fits of giggles after hearing the voice of one of his guests, who spoke in a squeaky manner due to a failed tonsillectomy. The clip is often mistaken for being real, and was showcased on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Star Channel news as being so.
The fictitious laughing presenter “Erik Hartman” is a character played by Tom Van Dyck, a Flemish comedian and actor. The two guests are portrayed by Lucas Van Den Eynde (as Valère) and An Miller (as Marijke). The full version of the sketch shows the Hartman character as a radio DJ looking back upon the giggling incident that had caused him to be fired.
Part of the Boemerang sketch was recently featured in an Argentinian television advertisement of the popular Quilmes beer titled Risas (laughs) where Hartman is seen laughing.
The title translates to “in the glory”.
I thought that was real too..
