Republic of Telly reimagined Whiplash with the humble tin whistle as its star


AFTER TACKLING BIRDMAN rather excellently last month, Republic of Telly have parodied another Oscar-winning film – Whiplash.

Or Whistlash, to give it its rightful name.

Kevin McGahern is the promising young tin whistle player being put through absolute hell by Bernard O’Shea – who isn’t quite as menacing as JK Simmons, but still.

Shout out to Nadia Forde’s big line: “I’M AMAZING AT BLOWING THINGS!”
