Jocky or Jackie?

  • Sharebar

In what was thought  a practical joke by Top Of The Pops props staff, 1982 saw Dexys Midnight Runners perform Jackie Wilson said (I’m in Heaven when you Smile) in front of a huge picture of  the then World Darts Champion Jocky Wilson. Pure Comedy Genius.

This was witnessed by millions on peak time T.V. and is still one of the Best practical Jokes ever seen, or was it? You decide. Was it a deliberate ploy to get everyone talking about the record, clever marketting  or a few giggles for the viewers. If anyone knows which please let us know.
