Brentford Stadium Announcer Falls For The Oldest Trick In The Book

Brentford Stadium Announcer Falls For The Oldest Trick In The Book

Brentford's stadium announcer fell for the oldest trick in the book when reading out a birthday message.

Peter Gilham has been manning the tannoy as the voice of Brentford for over 50 years, with his duties ranging from doing the goal announcements to the pre-match birthdays.

But the matchday PA announcer got done over big time when he was duped into saying a slew of funny, inappropriate names over the microphone.

"Happy birthday to Wales' number one Brentford fan Mike Oxlong, wishing you all the best from friends Sel Ami and Hugh Jenas," was the crude message he read out, not even noticing one bit.

There were no fans in attendance due to COVID-19 but Brentford posted the video on their social channels in an attempt to bring their fans closer to the matchday experience behind closed doors.

And so hilarity ensued on social media, where the video has been widely circulating.

Veteran Gilham is not the only announcer to fall this type of classic prank. In February 2019 during a 4-1 win over Ramsbottom in the FA trophy, AFC Fylde's host was asked to read out the number plate of a white Nissan Micra.

In a cunning act reminiscent of Mo's Tavern in The Simpsons, three young Fylde supporters decided to go up and ask the announcer to call out the plate 'NE14 ABJ''.

The announcer promptly read it out over the tannoy thinking it was getting to someone to move the vehicle but of course the car and vehicle didn't exist and was he was made to look a fool.
