    Phil Lucas: James Blunt, employee of the month

"Cee Lo Green in the canteen" and other celebrity puns from Phil Lucas

Posted by Liv Siddall,

“Now, I’m not going to pretend to you that what I do has any real worth. But then again, can any of us claim real worth?” are the words of Phil Lucas, our new favourite human. With Heat Magazine as his guide, and Photoshop as his sword, Phil has created a list of celebrities, working in dull office jobs and performing particularly mundane tasks that, coincidentally, rhyme perfectly with their name. There isn’t much left to explain other than this has validity because it’s not just some internet tripe, it’s the work of a very clever writer and comedian, who has officially just made our week. All hail Phil Lucas!
