What do Jesus Christ, Jeremy Corbyn, Jeremy Clarkson and James Cove have in common?

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Apart from their obvious love of skiing, there can be no doubt that either of these media personalities is capable of writing a bible or having a bible written about them.
That said, James Cove's enthusiasm for skiing is surely without peer.

Here he is, in 2 recent videos that could maybe benefit from a growth of audience (the purpose of this generous posting) ...

David, you missed out John Cleese and you misused the word "either".
Hope this helps.
No need to thank me or reply in any way.
Ever.
Although you probably won't be able to help yourself.

Firstly, thanks very much for popping in. I posted it because:

a. James Cove is an old friend of mine.
b. Quoting the 'about' page of PlanetSki: "PlanetSKI was founded by the journalist, James Cove. He worked for 22-years at BBC News - starting in local radio and working his way up to being a TV news editor in the main BBC TV newsroom in London."
c. Looking at the YouTube viewing figures for these two videos, a couple of days ago (12 views and 2 views respectively) it seemed that there was 'audience growth potential'. Obviously one doesn't spend 22 years at the Beeb to cater for a dozen people.

The first video now has 99 views.
The second video now has 62 views.

OK, this isn't quite up there with Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' - 407,235,611 views as of now - but it's a start.

Sorry about that omission and error. Have you noticed that most people do this when they put ski boots on?

I think it means 'genuine', as in 'it's a genuine Blizzard'.

James is a great guy and works damn hard. Not sure he'd thank you for forever documenting the reach of some of his videos, but you'll note the same videos hosted directly on Facebook performed rather better.

I know what the word means and it's pronounced 'bone-ah-fied' - to rhyme with 'died'

@Davina Goldballs, I think you might have had a more positive response if you'd said something like "James is a friend of mine. Do me a favour and have a look as I think he's doing a great job"

That is the way most Americans would pronounce it.

It isn't the classically correct way or the normal UK way to pronounce it, which would be bone-ah-fie-dee or bone-ah-fie-day.

Note - I haven't seen the video (blocked in work which is where I am now), so have no idea how it was pronounced there.

 And love to help out and answer questions and of course, read each other's snow reports.

I agree with you, clarky. Works hard, plays hard, thinks hard, talks hard. Here's James, speaking snowHeads 8 years ago in 2009 - with video interview:

"What's a snowHead?
"So are they all just a bunch of sad anoraks with no friends and too much time on their hands?"
http://www.planetski.eu/news/486

And here's James, reporting snowHeads 3 days ago:
Petition for Sunday Ski Train
"A petition's been launched by Daniel Elkan, the founder of the rail-ski information guide, Snowcarbon, and Graham MacMahon of the skier forum, Snowheads."

Alex Heney is correct. "bone-ah-fie-day" is the bonafide English pronunciation.

Quite right. James is a friend of mine. Do me a favour and have a look as I think he's doing a great job.

This bloke Jesus Christ is quite clearly a lampoon of the comic messiah himself, Our Lord John Cleese. Even the initials, JC, are exactly the same.
