The Topp Twins - Do Not Adjust Your Twin-Set: Pasifika

Television (Excerpts) – 1998

The Topp Twins — Do Not Adjust Your Twin Set (later named The Topp Twins) ran for three seasons in the late 1990s, and featured the iconic duo performing comedy sketches and music, and visiting events in character. In this 1998 clip, the bossy Camp Mother (Lynda Topp) and bumbling Camp Leader (Jools Topp) visit Pasifika the world's biggest Polynesian festival. In classic Topp Twins fashion, they immerse themselves fully; serving food, learning the Samoan art of siapo (tapa cloth) and singing with a choir. The segment is intercut with pranks and dancing from Ken and Ken, the twins' blokey alter egos. 

Oh you've dropped the curry in Camp Leader . . . you've got the bag in the rice.
