Spitting Image Trailer Shows Boris Johnson, Donald Trump And Vladimir Putin Battle In Sauna
The trailer for Spitting Image has dropped and there's a bizarre scene showing Boris Johnson, Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin having a sauna-based brawl... with penises on full display.
WARNING: CONTAINS PUPPET SCHLONG
Not their real penises, of course, but those of their puppet counterparts, which take a battering in this clip from the relaunch of the satirical comedy show.
The show, which hasn't been around for 24 years, is back on BritBox and its return sees a whole host of celebrities facing its unforgiving wit - including BoJo, POTUS Donald Trump, Kanye West and even Gwyneth Paltrow.
Hey, she can't expect to sell vag candles and not get rinsed for it.
In one scene we see 'Kanye' at a United Nations meeting declaring he is the ruler of Earth and chucking Yeezys at the delegates, while Trump's loses his toupee.
But, arguably the most disturbing clip of them all is when the world leaders are in a sauna together and end up having a bit of a barney.
Trump and Johnson are in a sauna eating fried chicken when Trump says: "I wouldn't worry about some dumb TV show, Boris. I mean, how are they going to make us look stupid?"

At that very moment 'Putin' enters with two ladies on each arm, announcing: "This is private steam room. Get out, you fat bums."
His towel then drops and the trio engage in a fight that... well, that you can't unsee.
Spitting Image will return on Saturday 3 October where it will then be on weekly for 10 weeks exclusively on BritBox in the UK.
It was announced earlier this year that celebrated Spitting Image co-creator Roger Law had returned to head up the show's creative team, while multi-award-winner Jeff Westbrook (The Simpsons, Futurama) is producing and leading the writing team.
The show has been produced by Avalon throughout the Covid-19 pandemic and over 100 puppets have already been developed by socially distanced teams of artists.
Other characters include (deep breath): Adele, Baby Yoda, Billie Eilish, Chrissy Teigen, Dominic Cummings, Dwayne Johnson, Ed Sheeran, Elon Musk, Greta Thunberg, Grimes, Idris Elba, Jacinda Ardern, Jeff Bezos, Kim Kardashian, Lewis Hamilton, Mark Zuckerberg, Matt Hancock, Meghan Duchess of Sussex, Oprah Winfrey, Piers Morgan, The Pope, Prince Andrew, Priti Patel, Richard Branson, Rishi Sunak, RuPaul, Taylor Swift, Tiger Woods and Tyson Fury.
And that's just the ones we get to see in the trailer.
Roger Law said: "Everything the team have done on the new Spitting Image shows, the caricatures, puppets and satirical gags have all been done in the public interest - as Boris might say: 'Pro bono publico'.
"It's time to come off furlough. The people have spoken and the puppets are oven ready."
