The Horror Over Soho
FYC: "The Horror Over Soho" - Depressing and somewhat nauseating true tale, told with excrutiating flashbacks, about a braying, coked-up marketing executive holding court in a champagne bar, regaling his sycophantic colleagues with stories of his sordid infidelities and greatest personal achievments, including coming up with a (failed) pitch for a sport-related biscuit campaign ("SCOR-eos!") and rebranding an ugly little hatchback as a "mini-SUV", complete with tiny bull-bars, for which he considers himself some sort of cross between Bill Hicks and Albert Einstein. An impassioned argument for human extinction.
