This video easily gets my nomination for the sublime and the ridiculous award for 1997. I mean, how often do you get to see a donut explaining the mysteries of life after death? I soon had visions of Polo mints preaching sanctification and the dreaded men in white coats. Still, I have to admit that getting on first name terms with a donut called Duncan is a brilliant way of tackling the thorny issue of bereavement counselling. Aimed at the under 10s, this 30 minute film features a bunch of up-market Sesame Street kids as they rehearse a Passion play with their recently widowed teacher. Rob Evans owns up to being the Donut Man and he weaves elements of the Easter story around a fine collection of catchy songs that you would do well to seriously consider for use in your church's next resurrection celebration. Meanwhile, I'll get back to fantasy land and try to imagine an Eccles Cake singing "Shine Jesus Shine".
