Remember MasterChef Synesthesia aka “Buttery Biscuit Base”, the YouTube sensation that took a line of Gregg Wallace’s judging from MasterChef and turned it into a dancefloor monster? In 2011 it got 6.4m YouTube hits and a vote of approval from Wallace himself.
The video’s author, Swede Mason, has struck again – remixing Master Baker John from Sky1 documentary Greggs: More Than Meats the Pie.
John’s unpretentious approach to baking – “I’m a baker. I go into a bakery, throw a bit of flour around, happy days” – forms the basis of a euphoric track that seems to encourage us all to do some “baking”.
“Friday night, two in the morning,” sings John as some filthy keyboards kick in. “Baking away, as bakers do…”
As Mary Berry and Delia Smith would agree, John is right: baking’s addictive once you get started.
