Patrick Stewart, Simon Pegg and Ryan Lochte in Olympic spoof

Dan Cleeve

Swimming in an ocean of Olympic news, gold medal updates and performance analysis, a Funny or Die video has become a shining beacon of light relief for any Olympic enthusiast (or anyone else, for that matter).


British actor Sir Patrick Stewart assumes the role of a mucky looking ticket tout, out to con people into buying over-priced tickets with his humourous way of words.


With dark British humour at the forefront of this short video, including calling a couple of American fans Yankee Pankees, this really is a must-watch for one and all.


(Plus buff American swimmer Ryan Lochte makes a well-timed and beautifully executed cameo as, well, himself.)


We salute you, Funny or Die. Watch it now.
