The country has gone X-Factor crazy, and one particularly lovable contestant this year is 54 year old Brazilian Wagner Carillho. Wagner is this year’s X-Factor’s token comedy act, giving an entertaining, if a little tuneless performance each week. This week however, it was not Wagner’s performance that got people talking, but the spoof clip circulating the internet of Stephen Fry supposedly exaggeratingly praising the Brazillian singer. Fry is in fact talking about Wilhelm Wagner, the renowned German opera composer.
The clip sees Fry claim “It did something most extraordinary to me. It made me do things inside- it releases forces within me”.
Fry has commented on his Twitter page, “Can’t decide what’s funnier: the way the video is cut together, or that some actually believe I am talking about the X-Factor Wagner.”
