this one is slightly late today … had a super lazy sunday of formula one and tellyvision box 🙌🏻
despite this super chill day, i managed to learn something about one of the great shows from my childhood 👍🏻
#tdil the little car ‘brum’ was so called because he was a brummie 😬
so, for those of you who aren’t part of the 90’s fam 👊 – brum was a show that ran between ‘91 and ‘02, that consisted of a tiny car from the 1920’s constantly escaping a museum to explore the great city of birmingham 🚗.
as a lover of both cars and brummies #backtomyroots, brum is literally my perfect tellybox show 📺 … like, it just doesn’t get better than that 👌🏻 … i actually quite miss brum (i just hadn’t realised until right now 😂).
anyway, back to the fact! i was always under the impression that brum was named ‘brum’ due to him being a car and cars saying “brum brum”. turns out that i was only 50% correct.
part of the reason that brum was given his name was due to him living in a museum in birmingham 😏 brum was totally a brummie 🙌🏻.
you know, after writing this, it has occurred to me how much sense this fact makes 🙈 … i think the true fact of the matter here is that i was too young to actually realise brum was filmed in brumland 😂 had i known that, i’d have possibly guessed this fact sooner 😕
oh well, i guess it’s been a while since we had a post that was complete drivel … so this comes as a welcome change 😅 – tomorrow we shall return to hardcore actual facts! 🤓 #weprobablywont
anyway, i think that’s enough from me today 🙃
i’m out ✌🏻 #tdil
