Jimmy Savile ringtones still selling like hot cakes on iTunes
How's about that then?
The theme tune to Jimmy Savile's Jim'll Fix It is one of the top selling iPhone ringtones.
Now then, now then: the iTunes comedy chart
Despite public outcry over revelations of Savile's child abusing past, the £0.99 jingle is outselling the "laughing chipmunk", a Jack Bauer 24 themed piece, and the explicit ditty "It's Your Wife…" The Savile ringtone is currently number four in the chart of top-ten comedy-themed tones in the Apple iTunes store. Jim'll Fix It comes just below "C*nt calling" at number three.
El Reg notes that although other ringtones have user feedback such as "So funny, couldn't get this out of my head", all the Jim'll Fix It's ratings and comments date from October 2012 and include observations such as: "Pedo man", "Paedo" and "Couldn't possibly get this with what's happening at the mo".
While moves are swiftly afoot to airbrush the late Savile from Britain's history books, the shamed presenter's TV show theme tune is also available for download in the iTunes Music section, where we note the works of disgraced pop star Gary Glitter also remain available. ®
Think thats bad
I'm selling Saville masks for Halloween, that should scare the trick or treaters.
"So if I hear this ringtone and contact the police to report someone playing an offensive ringtone they may well arrest the person on a public order offense."
No, because it's not offensive: It's a theme song for an old TV series, hosted by someone UNDER INVESTIGATION AND NOT EVEN LEGALLY YET GUILTY OF crimes. The offence is due to inference that you make. I'm not saying he's innocent: I'm just saying that it's not offensive.
You seriously think this is offensive, yet 'C&^t calling' is unworthy of comment or offence?
I've not seen any evidence, you haven't seen any evidence. I'd be surprised if the police have seen any evidence.
I've seen that the police have lots of "inquiries" ongoing in to things that happened in the 70s. Most of these, without independent corroboration, will boil down to "she said, he said", except that the "he" is dead and cannot say anything. This is why, "of the dead, speak nothing except good".
Re-hashing this shit does no good to the alleged victims, no good to the alleged offenders family, no good to his charitable legacy. The only people who benefit from this navel gazing shit storm are the media and their prurient brain washed readership.
